The Observer view on Ronnie Corbett

2 April 2016 4:05 PM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

A comic genius who also helped the next generation

Bidding goodbye to a great comic talent inevitably inspires nostalgia, and the death of Ronnie Corbett has opened a floodgate. Torrents of affection for a whole era of television – an era that has recently spent time helping the police with their inquiries – have suddenly been released. Corbett’s heyday has been justly celebrated as unembarrassedly silly and all-embracing. It might be technically correct to point out that when The Two Ronnies were drawing 18 million viewers on a Saturday night there were not many channels on offer, but if their show had not provided warmth and laughter, the nation would have switched off.

The family audience was a broad club back then. There was an assumption of shared taste that may have alienated some important groups, and yet to become that unglamorous-sounding thing “a prime-time staple” the Ronnies’ double act had to be open and welcoming. »

Brendan O’Carroll: My Family at War review – a poignant history lesson, with added craic

17 March 2016 12:20 AM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Move over David Starkey, I get my TV history from Mrs Brown now – this was a thorough and involving programme about the 1916 rebellion on Dublin’s streets. Plus: the quest for eternal life in Horizon: The Immortalist

It is 100 years since the Easter Rising in Dublin and your history teacher today will be Mr Brendan O’Carroll. What, him/her off Mrs Brown’s Boys? Are your having a fecking laugh? Was there no learned professor of Irish history available? No, wait, because, for Brendan, it’s personal: three of his uncles were involved (uncles! They must procreate quite late in life in the O’Carroll family). It’s called Brendan O’Carroll: My Family at War (BBC2).

So he – he’s not in drag today – is out and about in the capital of the republic, finding out what The Rising means to the average Dubliner (a lot), and posing for a selfie or two. »
