Win Classic BBC Comedies
Are you being Served
The staff at Grace Brothers rarely sold anything, but there were always certainties about this great 70s series: Mr Humphries was ‘free’, Mrs Slocombe was worried about her ‘pussy’ and Young Mr Grace would appear to declare ‘You’ve all done very well!’.
Alongside Captain Peacock, Mr Grainger, Mr Rumbold, Mr Lucas and Miss Brahms they filled the store with comic bickering, preposterous sales ideas and almost any excuse for fun.
It Ain’t Half Hot Mum
Meet the gang from the Royal Artillery Concert Party, the boys given the task of entertaining the British troops in India during the Second World War.
Deep in the jungle they get up to all kinds of antics putting on ropey performances and improvising with the limited props they have, although ‘Gloria’ doesn’t seem to mind dressing as a woman.
Last Of The Summer Wine
The longest-running British TV sitcom of all time suggests an atmosphere of golden nostalgia, of hazy summer days and the slow but inexorable passing of an era.
Well it certainly is for a trio of oddly philosophising, whimsical old duffers in the Yorkshire Pennines who, in their twilight years, return to a carefree second childhood.
Open All Hours
A BBC sitcom written by Roy Clarke which ran for four series (26 episodes in all) between 1976 and 1985, with a pilot episode from the Seven of One series in 1973. In 2004, the series was voted eighth in Britain’s Best Sitcom.
Habitual offender Norman Stanley Fletcher (Ronnie Barker) is doing five years of porridge at HM Slade Prison.
He whiles away the time sharing his wealth of experience with his fellow inmates, particularly naive, young first-timer Lennie (Richard Beckinsale) whom Fletch takes under his fatherly wing.
Waiting for God
Feeling old? You will, after a visit to the Bayview Retirement Village. The food’s appalling, the staff treat you like idiot children, and any show of independence is strictly frowned upon. But two elderly eccentrics refuse to give in and grow old gracefully just yet.
Meet Rene, the most wanted man in Occupied France: Women want his body. The Resistance wants his brain. And the Nazis want his sausage!
In a small café in occupied France the harassed proprietor, Rene, is fighting his own war. With the German Army in residence at the bar, Rene is risking his neck to aid the Resistance by hiding two British airmen and a radio transmitter upstairs. As if this wasn’t enough, Rene has also got involved in hiding a priceless painting in a garlic sausage. But Rene’s real problem is his wife, Edith, and the affairs he is having with two sexy waitresses!
