Personal Quote:

I don't know why they call it light entertainment though. Were Morecambe (Eric Morecambe) and Wise (Ernie Wise) light entertainment? The Two Ronnies (1971)? I think it was very heavy.

I've never liked the idea of light entertainment; I've never understood it and I never will. See more »
