Product Description

United Kingdom released, PAL/Region 2 DVD: LANGUAGES: English ( Dolby Digital 2.0 ), SPECIAL FEATURES: 3-DVD Set, Black & White, Interactive Menu, Scene Access, SYNOPSIS: Ronnie Barker has been justifiably hailed as a comic genius. His humour transcends genres and continues to inspire new generations of comedians who pay tribute to his immense skill as a writer and performer. During a hugely successful career, Barker received numerous awards and accolades and he received a BAFTA Lifetime Achievement tribute in 2004. Hark at Barker (1969) employs the writing talents of a team of comedy stalwarts including Graeme Garden and Bill Oddie (The Goodies), Eric Idle (Monty Python's Flying Circus) and Barker himself (writing as enigmatic contributor 'Gerald Wiley'). Barker is the doddering, decrepit Lord Rustless, hereditary owner of Chrome Hall and professional pontificator on whatever takes his fancy, in a number of sketches that allow Barker to play a variety of roles in each show. Supported by David Jason - who also plays multiple roles - Hark at Barker showcases both comedians' pitch-perfect timing and mastery of humour, and earned Barker the 1969 Variety Club Award for ITV Personality of the Year. Six Dates with Barker (1971) features a different story and historical setting for each show, from the Phantom Raspberry Blower who terrorises Victorian London to a far future where laughter is compulsory and grave consequences await those who don't... Featuring scripts from John Cleese, Spike Milligan and, of course, Gerald Wiley, as well as guest appearances by, among others, David Jason and Michael Hordern, Six Dates with Barker demonstrates the sheer versatility of one of the great heroes of comedy. SCREENED/AWARDED AT: BAFTA Awards, ...The Ronnie Barker Collection - Two Complete Series - 3-DVD Set ( Hark at Barker / Six Dates with Barker ) ( 6 Dates with Barker )

5.0 out of 5 stars Highly chortlesome, but 3/10 for Network 29 Oct 2008
Ronnie, bless him, was a national treasure and recognised thankfully before his passing. This is an interesting and funny look at his career prior to the introduction of Mr Corbett. The Phantom Raspberry Blower of Olde London Town was done on the Two Ronnies, but this is an interesting version and probably superior. All great stuff.

Network... the discs are all labelled wrongly. Disc 1 is 3, 2 is 1 etc. Never mind, we still love you all to bits. More of the same please.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ronnie Classics 28 Aug 2012
Verified Purchase
This DVD was well worth the asking price as it contains some of Ronnie Barker's lost gems. I am in the process of collecting all his works and I am glad I purchased this one as stuff on Network DVD is not usually around for long.
Well worth the watching!
