A tribute to the life and career of comedian, actor and writer Les Dawson, who is remembered today as one of the brightest stars of British TV comedy of the 20th century. The programme follows some of Les's friends, family, colleagues and collaborators as they revisit key moments from his career. Dawson's youngest daughter Charlotte, who was only 18 months old when he died in 1993, meets Opportunity Knocks director Royston Mayoh, who gave her father his big break back in 1967, and an interview with Roy Barraclough - recorded last year - details the origins of Cissie and Ada, the curmudgeonly northern housewives he and Dawson brought to life on Tv in the 1970s and 1980s. Also includes contributions by Barry Cryer, Rick Wakeman, Johnny Vegas, Lorraine Chase and Les's widow Tracy
