Comedian Ronnie Corbett of ‘The Two Ronnies’ Dies at 85

31 March 2016 10:42 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Scottish comedian Ronnie Corbett, best known as one-half of British comedy television staple “The Two Ronnies,” died on Thursday at age 85.

Ronnie Corbett Cbe, one of the nation’s best-loved entertainers, passed away this morning, surrounded by his loving family,” his publicist said in a statement to the BBC.

His partner on “Two Ronnies,” which aired for 16 years, was Ronnie Barker, who died in 2005. They were two of the U.K.’s most beloved comedians. Their signature sign-off, “Now it’s goodnight from me,” “and it’s goodnight from him” became known to a wide audience even after their show ended in 1987.

Many comedians took to Twitter to remember the late comedy star. British actor John Cleese, who worked with Corbett on “The Frost Report” in the 1960s, tweeted, “He had the best timing I’ve ever watched. He was a great, kind mentor and a wonderfully witty companion.”

One Show's Alex Jones and Matt Baker swap places in nod to BBC Breakfast row

Presenters say ‘we thought we’d change it up’ after allegations of sexism in Louise Minchin’s positioning on the morning show’s sofa

Alex Jones swapped places with co-host Matt Baker on The One Show sofa on Wednesday evening in a nod to the ongoing row over the positioning of BBC Breakfast presenters Dan Walker and Louise Minchin.

Walker’s position to the left of Minchin after replacing Bill Turnbull on BBC Breakfast sparked a sexism row. Former Countryfile host Miriam O’Reilly blamed “deep-rooted misogyny” for the decision to hand Walker, who is far less experienced than his co-host a position seen by some in the industry as the more prestigious spot.

Dawn and William S. Burroughs with R.E.M., among others.

Bizarre and banal TV show complaints made to the BBC

Yes, it’s annoying when the UK weather is rubbish, but is it really grounds to lodge a complaint with the BBC?

Imagine you’ve been wronged by a TV show. Some inaccuracy, or omission, or annoyance has caused the irksome weevil of discontent to crawl through your television and burrow underneath your skin. You can’t rid of it. After days of muttering under your breath and scribbling beards and fangs all over the Radio Times, it’s still there. Nothing will soothe you. You're left with only one choice.

It’s time to lodge a complaint.

If that complaint relates to anything other than Editorial Standards, it may be passed up to the BBC Trust’s Complaints and Appeals Board (Cab), the final arbiter on general grievances since 2011. And thanks to BBC transparency, such complaints are available, anonymously, to see online.

All the reaction and tributes to the BBC TV and Radio presenter Terry Wogan, who has died of cancer aged 77, best known for his chat show Wogan, the Eurovision Song Contest and Children In Need.

4.20pm GMT

We’re going to end this live blog now, thank you very much for all the touching contributions via GuardianWitness, especially the insights into the world of TOGs.

For 50 years Sir Terry graced our screens and airwaves. His warmth, wit and geniality meant that for millions he was a part of the family.

We are all so terribly sad upon hearing of the passing of Terry. I can’t put into words how the whole Radio 2 family is feeling.

None of us were expecting this, come out of a clear blue sky, so it’s really hard to take in.
