Books - 1983 Annual - This Is Your Life
Tommy and Bobby chalked up another 'first' in their careers when they became the first comedy double act ever to be featured on Thames Television's This Is Your Life.
Surprised by host Eamonn Andrews - who appeared out of a cannon, no less! - they thought they were filming an opening sequence for a TV show, in which they would be seen arriving at the theatre on a tandem. They almost fell off that bike when they realised the real reason they were being filmed!
Neither Tommy nor Bobby had any idea whatsoever that the show had been planned, and they had a fantastic time, both during the show, and at a party for family and friends which was held afterwards. And as for that big red book - that's a prized posession now.
