BFI: Queens Of TV Comedy

As part of the London 2012 Festival, the cultural complement to the London Games, Dick Fiddy looks at the pioneering 'golden girls' of TV comedy in Britain who fronted their own shows in a male-dominated era...

BFI blurb - programme opens Thursday. 
From music hall star Olive Fox to Smack The Pony.

As is the BFI.
And as will be the audience for this.
