An Audience with Billy Connolly (1)

Dating from 26/10/1985, this show is well-remembered by comedy connoisseurs for Billy's hilarious observations. For instance, his memories of growing up in Glasgow in the 1940s, also the routine about products that can be ordered from magazine adverts – such as the giant slipper or the padded suit. For the finale, Billy suggests that the National Anthem should be updated, keeping the lyrics but setting them to the tune of The Archers! Robbie Coltrane, Michael Parkinson, Michael Aspel, Janet Brown and Barbara Dickson can all be seen turning beetroot red with laughter.
