Anglia Television news item, Newman Sanders interviews Morecambe and Wise on Wellington Pier, Great Yarmouth.

At the Wellington Pier in Great Yarmouth, with the beach in the background, the presenter reports to camera in a serious tone until the comedy duo enter the frame.

Ernie stops him before he can reveal the cheeky punchline. All will be revealed at the show …
