Another in the semi-regular Carlton series focusing on London-based celebrities, this is a brief but surprisingly comprehensive look at the life and work of Frankie Howerd. Notable contributors include Barry Cryer, Barry Took, Ned Sherrin and Griff Rhys-Jones, all of whom discuss their own personal memories of working with Frankie over the years. The show is rounded off with some excellent archive clips of Frankie at his very best.

The documentary crops up regularly on the UK Biography Channel.
