Ronnie Barker and Ronnie Corbett star in highlights from their BBC TV series. This special facsimile vinyl-look CD edition of a classic LP includes such sketches as Mispronunciation; Night, Night; Cheers; Cricket Commentators; Train of Events; and not forgetting, the News according to The Two Ronnies. There's also All in a Day's Wonk; Sex Equality; Pam Ayres; The Castaway; and You're Welcome, Milord...

The Two Ronnies: Vol. 2 - "Me and Him" contains just under 45 minutes of highlights from The Two Ronnies.

Highlights include:

The News gag that sees Corbett commenting on next weeks show where: "I interview a lady that likes Nicholas Parsons..." and Barker adding: "and I interview a parson that likes knickerless ladies."

Ronnie Barker attempting to enroll in an evening class where he can learn a skill to kill his wife, who has been unfaithful to him.

Pam Ayres poem.

And the obligatory Corbett story, which this time is called The Castaway.

I was surprised to see two very similar sketches included in this compilation. When you've heard one sketch with the humour coming from the mispronunciation of words... well, you've probably heard them all.

While far from an essential purchase, there's a few chuckles to be had from this slice of nostalgia.
