Resolved Question: Is Comedy Acting
Is comedy acting more difficult than serious acting?
It astonishes me how, especially on British Sitcoms of the 1970s and 1980s other actors don't burst out laughing.
Many like Porridge, Dads Army, Only Fools And Horses etc are inTill Death Us Do Part and sequel In Sickness And In Health, when Alf Garnett starts ranting about something that annoys him, the studio audience goes mad with laughter but the other actors are completely straight faced.
I did however see a 1970s show called Sykes with Eric Sykes and Hattie Jacques, and Peter Sellers appears and when he starts with his lines, Hattie Jacques, looks away with her head in her hand, trying to stifle the laugh.
And that is a an actress with 30 years of comedy experience at the time
I wonder is comedy difficult to act, how do the other actors stop themselves laughing when something is so funny and play it so serious

Resolved Question: Can I watch missed tv
I am interested in canals of Britain. I enjoyed Timothy West and Prunella Scales first episode of "Great Canal Journeys".
Unfortunately I will have to miss the second episode.
Is there any way I can see this at a later date on my computer?
