Eric Chappell took up full-time writing in 1973 after his first stage play, The Banana Box, produced at the Apollo Theatre, London, was an instant success. It later inspired the classic comedy series Rising Damp, produced by Yorkshire Television. Rising Damp ran for four series from 1974 to 1978 and in its final year received the BAFTA Award for best situation comedy. In 1979 Eric's screen version won the Evening Standard Film Award for best comedy. Eric's other television successes include The Squirrels, The Bounder (both of which won him Pye TV awards), Only When I Laugh, Home to Roost and Duty Free, all for Yorkshire Television. Eric is married, has two children and lives in Grantham, Lincolnshire, voted the most boring place in England. This, he suggests, is why he has been able to get so much work done over the years, in all, over two hundred television comedy scripts and more than half a dozen stage plays. He is unquestionably one of the top writers of comedy in Britain. Richard Webber is a writer and journalist specialising in showbusiness and, in particular, classic comedy. He has contributed to a host of newspapers and magazines, including the Daily Express, The Mirror, Sunday Mirror, TV Times, The Lady, Yours, OK! My Weekly and Woman's Weekly. He is the author of several previous books about classic television programmes, including the bestselling The Complete A-Z of Dad's Army, for which he worked closely with David Croft and Jimmy Perry, the writers of the series. Richard lives in Somerset with his wife, Paula, and baby daughter, HollieReview:
