I have just added a page featuring a Christmas treat from 2005. Ray, Alan and Tessa discuss their career in a 90 minute special with Nigel Williams

it can be found here : http://www.albertandharold.co.uk/Lunch_With_Galton_and_Simpson/Lunch_With_Galton_and_Simpson.html

A fantastic addition, as always!!!!

So nice to have a page devoted to Ray and Alan. To me, british literary culture has three major names... William Shakespeare, Charles Dickens, and Galton and Simpson.

They should be on the national curriculum.

Did anyone else notice the clip on here of Hancock saying "They can put a man on the moon..."... Strange, since Hancock died a year before the first man ever set foot there... Maybe Ray's hiding a time machine in his basement where those Steptoe recordings were found!!

Now that very cool.

In past interviews I've love the banter between Galton & Simpson and how honest they are, their times in a Hospital ward where they first met on a TB ward and how ideas were formed and planted which would grow like a tree in a comedy fertile valley that produced so many juicy fruits in the form of Hancock, Steptoe, Citizen James, Frankie Howerd Scripts, and gems featuring the talents of Arthur Low and leonard Rossiter and more stuff with fallow writer Johnny Speight. I'll have a pound of those if they were on offer at my market... :P

I was born in '83, but grew up watching Steptoe and Hancock because my dad is a fan. Absolutely agree with you, Galton and Simpson are national treasures! British comedy today isn't in the same league!
