Watch Morecambe Wise Show 1978 online: Episode 2

The eyes of nation were waiting for their favourite double-act to deliver the goods having defected from the BBC and they were not disappointed. With a strong line-up of guest stars, notably Leonard Rossiter fresh from success in The Fall & Rise Of Reginald Perrin who provided the third Andrews Sister (!) in a Fabulous Forties segment and a spoof This Is Your Life' with the Royal Family opening the show the only let down was the fact that the press had leaked the fact that recently-resigned Prime Minister Harold Wilson was to appear. The show was a success nonetheless but would have been more so if the appearance of the ex-premier had been kept quiet. There is one particularly amusing incident when Wilson manages to upset Morecambe who disappears to the back of the flat, returning with a Maggie Rules O.K. banner, a reference to Margaret Thatcher who would soon become Prime Minister the following year.
