To accompany the release of Stan & Ollie, a new biopic on the world's greatest comedy duo, we’re revisiting the celebrated 2006 BBC drama about the pair from silent film maestro and writer Neil Brand.

Based on Neil’s critically acclaimed radio play of the same name, the film follows Stan Laurel's last visit to his dying friend and comedy partner Oliver 'Babe' Hardy and Stan's subsequent coming to terms with the ghosts of his past.

The film will be introduced by critic and film historian David Robinson who will reveal all about his time with Stan & Ollie, having met and interviewed them during their appearance onstage at Bristol Hippodrome in the 1950’s.

Followed by a Q&A with critic and film historian David Robinson and comedian Robin Ince.
