“It is something to do with the British psyche”

Eric & Ernie’s comedy script writer for much of the classic BBC 70’s period has sadly passed away. I remember him being interviewed about the pressure of writing during that period when the Xmas show was almost deemed to be the highlight of the season itself in Britain and how that intense demand pushed him over the edge mentally at one point. A very talented comedy writer who helped make so many of us laugh.
One of his last TV interviews is worth a watch here.
