Show Notes Chapter Markers

For the New Year break, we're playing out the latest in our Comedy Legends Series. This time it's a chat with Dick Clement and Ian Le Frenais. They joined Ashley for a chat from their homes in LA during the first lockdown in 2020.  Among the things up for discussion, the origins of The Likely Lads, Porridge and Auf Wiedersehen, Pet. Plus Dick and Ian talk about their writing chemistry and what they felt about the Porridge and Auf Wiedersehen remakes. They elude to some new projects in 2021/22 which we hope to update on in the New Year on Distinct Nostalgia.

If you'd like to suggest an interview (or reunion) with a past star/stars of any soap, comedy, drama. children's series, quiz show or film, then please drop us a line via the contact us page on the Distinct Nostalgia website at www.distinctnostalgia.com
