From heroic wartime escapades at POW camp Stalag Luft III, to a night at Chequers with Mrs Thatcher, A Bit of a Carry On is a warm and uplifting journey from wartime to showtime, taking us deep into the golden age of British TV & film comedy – just how did a girl from Glasgow and a lad from Manchester become the first married couple to both feature as subjects on This Is Your Life? With classic film and tv clips, rare photographs and a Q&A with Tyler, A Bit of a Carry On is your chance to really get to know two of British comedy’s brightest stars, who lived to make us laugh.

“A fantastic, fascinating story. Really interesting and really enjoyable – see it!”
