Do I detect a Hattie Jacques revival? The BBC are currently heavily trailing a new TV drama about her love life, featuring Ruth Jones in the title role. Or maybe it's a wider trend - there was a drama about the early career of Morecambe & Wise shown on BBC last week. Pretty good, too...

There was also a drama about Barbara Windsor, which I hear was pretty dreadful. But I'd love to see a film about Eric & Ernie.

The Eric & Ernie drama is still available on the BBC I-Player at the time of writing, but maybe it doesn't work outside the UK.

Yep, BBC TV stuff doesn't play outside of the UK, due to the existence of BBC cable channels in North America, but at least I can listen to their online radio shows.
