For over a quarter of a century Danny Baker has delighted and entertained us as one of UK’s finest and funniest radio and television presenters. Recently Danny has received well deserved praise for his new hit TV comedy series ‘From Cradle to Grave’ based on his own autobiography of the same name. Here Danny champions one of silent comedy’s great underdogs; Ben Turpin. One of the finest onscreen performers of his time, Ben Turpin is almost forgotten today but in his heyday, he was one of the funniest and most successful slapstick performers in movies. Join Danny as he shares his passion and enthusiasm for this unique performer illustrated with two complete Turpin classic shorts plus extracts from his best on-screen moments (70 mins).
