All seven one-off episodes of the BBC anthology comedy series, starring Ronnie Barker. Two of the characters and situations featured here became the basis for Barker's most successful series, 'Porridge' and 'Open All Hours'.
A welcome DVD release for this series of seven single comedies featuring the many faces of Ronnie Barker. As well as highlighting Barker's extraordinary comic range (and providing an early screen outing for David Jason) the series was the genesis of not one but two much-loved British sitcoms. Open All Hours appears here in embryonic pilot form and "Prisoner and Escort" went on to become perhaps Barker's best-loved creation, Porridge. Also included are "My Old Man", "Spanner's Eleven", "Another Fine Mess", "One Man's Meat" and "I'll Fly You For A Quid" (where Barker plays a both father and son).
