rear tail light bulb???

I've got a weird problem with my rear tail light bulb.

At first I thought it was a loose connection as it wasnt working this morning, so I took it out and before I realized it only fits 1 way I'd managed to make a connection fitting it the wrong way and it came on whilst holding it in place (i had side lights switched on), however when fitting it the correct way it doesn't light up. any ideas?

Thanks in advance

just took the bulb out and had a proper look at it, didnt realize that it has 2 filaments, one of them has burnt out. I was hoping it was just slight corrosion on contacts so I could just fix it with solder. oh well.
