Episode Summary

EDIT
Frankie Howerd: Rather You Than Me
AIRED:
The private life of Frankie Howerd was racked with depression and self-loathing of his own sexuality. His partner and manager, Dennis Heymer, would guide Howerd's career from the early 1960s - a time when little work and the death of his mother made him consider leaving show business, to the 1990s, when Howerd's comic genius found appreciation amongst a new, younger audience.moreless

      • Dennis Heymer was not happy with the way he was portrayed in this programme. He objected to a scene of him (played by Rafe Spall) in bed with another man. Heymer denied that he was ever unfaithful during his 30-year relationship with Howerd. Heymer described the programme as: "false and unflattering" and urged fans (of Howerd) to "switch off.".
