The Beatles are in full throttle and suddenly Northern is cool. On ITV a Northern comedy act is drawing audiences with their likeable, daft show Two of a Kind. Eric and Ernie had a rocky start on television but they didn't blow their second chance. They are on a roll and having fun at last. But how did they get from the bottom of the bill to primetime success? This is the story of the early days of Morecambe and Wise.
