I can still remember the whole house falling about laughing at it, those were the days when the whole house watched the same TV shows on the one TV.

The secret to it was that in rehearsal Eric Morecambe told Previn it was absolutely essential that he kept a straight face when the punch-line came - 'if you so much as smirk' he said 'it just won't be as funny, and we will only get one shot at it'.

To his everlasting credit, Previn did exactly as he was told, and what has been hailed as one of TV's greatest comedy moments occurred.
