The Bob Hope Story20031225

Earlier this year, the veteran entertainer Bob Hope died at the age of 100.

In this tribute to one of the world's best-loved comedians, the comedy writer Dick Vosburgh tells the Bob Hope story and recalls his own experiences of writing gags for the British-born comedian who never forgot his roots.

Bob Hope was born in Eltham, south London, in May 1903 and emigrated to the US with his family when he was 5.

Although he used to joke about being ""marked for export"" from an early age, Hope loved performing for UK audiences and often returned here for hugely popular tours.

This tribute programme features archive performances and interviews with Bob Hope and some of his former colleagues.
