Les Dawson Forever, 2016
It’s twenty five years at the time of writing (2018) that we lost a truly great comic genius: Les Dawson.
Les Dawson Forever was a documentary, first broadcast by ITV3 in 2016 in two parts. It was shown again on ITV to mark twenty five years since his death.
Over two hour-long shows, Les Dawson Forever featured interviews with family, friends and people who worked alongside him. Together with previously unseen and revealing footage the program tells the story of one of British TV’s greatest comedians.
From the back streets of Manchester to millions of our living rooms, Les Dawson has cemented a place in the heats of audiences around the world.
