Please show Laurel and Hardy on mainstream TV again so future generations can enjoy them.

For decades upon decades, Stan Laurel and Oliver Hardy's brand of humour have been the inspiration behind many of today's (and yesterday's) comedians. Today, almost 100 years since they first graced our screens, their movies are still loved worldwide by audiences of all ages, yet they are rarely seen on mainstream television these days. The BBC have told us that if we can get at least 20,000 signatures on this petition to prove that the public want to see Laurel and Hardy films on mainstream television again, then they will listen. Don't let future generations miss out on the works of Laurel and Hardy. sign today and share with your friends.

  • joanne mitchell-waite It saddens me to know that as a grand sheik of a laurel and hardy fan club - I started to watch Laurel and Hardy with my grandparents some 30 yrs or so ago, my son is lucky that he has me and my husband to keep him watching and loving laurel and hardy, I think as a nation we need good, clean sensible family fun on the television, you don't have any swear words, nothing wrong/bad in any of the 106 laurel and hardy films. sooo please bring the boys back to our screens :)
