On my way in

Eddie Mair | 10:43 UK time, Wednesday, 18 July 2007

I always pass this...it proclaims a part of TV centre where the names of big stars of yesteryear litter the terrace. Tomorrow, I'll pick out a name.

    Sorry, Eddie: Who is Sylvia Dee? Did she write the song with which our old friends Morecambe and Wise are eternally linked?

    Incidentally, just the thought of Our Eric makes me smile. And the sun's shining, too.

    Hats of to the Hero of Morecambe.

    I think she wrote it. And now I have the song in my head.

    Nah, stick with "Eric" -- it suits you.

    "In this world where we live
    There should be more happiness
    So much joy you can bring
    To each brand new bright tomorrow"

    Or something like that.

    Anyway, Eddie, hope you're having a sunny day.

    Thanks for today's picture. M & W were two of the warmest, consistently hilarious, entertainers I've seen and I didn't know (never thought aboout it) that Sylvia Dee composed the song associated with that wonderful act.

    Couldn't be more apt that M & W's theme song and it's composer should form part of the "Beeb's" Star Terrace sign

    Like Big Sister, I'm now wearing a big smile...

    It's stuck in your brain? (An "Ohrwurm" or earworm as it's called in German). Never mind, this will clear it out - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7wMHcpMmV9g

    We sang at a wedding where the happy couple walked (disappointingly - no skipping!) back down the aisle to 'Bring me sunshine...'
