Porridge

Written by Dick Clement and Ian La Frenais Porridge notched up 18 episodes, two Christmas specials and a film and never have a bad patch. Starting with the pilot 'Prisoner and Escort' in April 1973 Porridge boosted character actor Ronnie Barker out of the role of sketch comedian and into the world as a serious comedy actor. Joined by the talents of Richard Beckinsale, Fulton Mackay and Brian Wilde Porridge entertained the British public for four years.

Set in the fictional Slade prison in Cumberland Norman Stanley Fletcher is sentenced to five years. He is joined by first time criminal Leonard Godber and the two are paired off together in a cell much to Fletchers annoyance. Slowly the two become good friends and Godber learns that little victories are what can keep a man sane in prison. Keeping an eye on the inmates is ex drill sergeant Mr Mackay who rules the block with a rod of iron. Second to Mackay is the ever pondering Mr Barrowclough who Fletcher easily wraps round his finger.

Monty Pythons Flying Circus.

Monty Pythons Flying Circus hit the television screens on the 5th of October 1969. It featured new players on the block John Cleese, Graham Chapman, Michael Palin, Terry Jones, Eric Idle and Terry Gilliam. Now all house hold names it was Python that gave them their fame. The show lasted four series and gave us such legendary sketches as The Dead Parrot sketch, The Argument Sketch and the Cheese shop sketch.
