Welsh Greats – 7 September 2021 – 7/9/2021 – Tuesday – BBC Four

Harry Secombe
Series 2 Episode 2 of 4

Aled Jones presents the funny, warm and moving life story of comedian and singer Harry Secombe, a down-to-earth Swansea lad who became one of the nation’s best-loved entertainers.

From The Goons to Highway, from Pickwick to Songs of Praise, he ‘ruled the world’ with a giggle and a song. But Harry’s good humour gave no hint of the serious challenges he had faced, from the brutality of war to life-threatening illness.

Featuring Peter Sellers and Spike Milligan, the programme reminds us of Harry’s natural warmth, his faith, and his infectious humour.
