Product Description

Product Description

Box set containing all three series and two Christmas specials of the popular prison-set sitcom. Norman Stanley Fletcher (Ronnie Barker) and Lennie Godber (Richard Beckinsale) provide the laughs as they do time in the following episodes: 'New Faces, Old Hands'; 'The Hustler'; 'A Night In'; 'A Day Out'; 'Ways and Means'; 'Men Without Women'; 'Just Desserts'; 'Heartbreak Hotel'; 'Disturbing the Peace'; 'No Peace for the Wicked'; 'Happy Release'; 'The Harder They Fall'; 'No Way Out - the 1975 Christmas Special'; 'The Desperate Hours - the 1976 Christmas Special'; 'A Storm in a Teacup'; 'Poetic Justice'; 'Rough Justice'; 'Pardon Me'; 'A Test of Character'; and 'Final Stretch'.


This feature-length version of the Porridge [1979] TV series continues to follow the exploits of prison inmates Norman Stanley Fletcher (Ronnie Barker) and Lennie Godber (Richard Beckinsale). A new officer (Christopher Godwin) makes Mackay (Fulton Mackay) look postively timid and, to make things even more exciting, an escape plan which Fletch wants no part of is developing.

This was a surprise gift for Dad, he has a DVD player but prefers VHS as he says - less fuss.
He reckons Porridge is Barker at his best and has often thanked me for a treasured gift.
