Storyline

The show starts with an episode of 'Starkers and Krutch'. Eric is not happy with the opening set as his name is misspelt. Elton has a lot of trouble getting directions to the correct studio. Angharad Rees is introduced as she is to star in a scene set in a country cottage, which ends with a duo by Angharad and Ernie singing "Baby, It's Cold Outside". Angela Rippon is in a chorus line of dancers. Eric and Ernie reminisce as they move home to a new place. Eric and Ernie perform "There is Nothing Like a Dame" backed by a chorus. Ernie's play is called 'Cyrano de Bergerac' and stars Francis Matthews as Count de Basie and Penelope Keith as Roxanne. Eric, Ernie and Penelope conclude by singing "Darn It, Baby, That's Love". Elton John concludes the show singing "Shine On Through". Written by jem
