A book of previously unseen material about Eric Morecambe written by his son has now been published.
Lost and Found, compiled by Gary Morecambe, has a foreword by actress and comedienne Miranda Hart.
The book collates the very best of the British comedy great but also a plethora of never before seen material.
Pulled together from a variety of dusty archives and private homes across the UK, this material includes notebooks, sketches, skits, musings, interviews and rare photographs of the comic genius that no one ever knew existed.
The book also features memories and anecdotes from those who were close to and worked with the great Eric over the years.
Twenty-seven years after his death, the nation still mourns and misses the ‘one with the glasses’.
In Lost and Found Eric’s son, Gary Morecambe, gives the British public the opportunity to view a host of these hidden interview transcriptions and photos first hand, and a rare insight into the man behind the legend.
