Publisher's Summary

Here is the unforgettable "Fletch", everyone's favourite criminal, making the most of his enforced stay at Her Majesty's Pleasure. Never a man to shrink from a challenge, even from behind bars, Fletch could manage anything from organising a win on the horses to buying a council flat in Mayfair. Amazing his cell mates and infuriating officialdom, Fletch, the Arthur Daley of penal servitude, always comes out on top.

Starring Ronnie Barker with Brian Wilde, Richard Beckinsale, and Fulton Mackay, here are four prize shows from the original television series: "Prisoner and Escort", "No Way Out", "The Desperate Hours", and "Pardon Me".

    "Porridge - Comedy Gold"

    Ronnie Barker was a genius. To really appreciate this you have to be ready for subtle linguistic twists that will leave you howling with laughter. Porridge was some of his finest work. Get the whole series, it is worth it. Thank you for all the laughter and good times Mr. Barker. Rest In Peace.

    "Thought this was optional"

    Great classic comedy. It can be listened to over and over and still be funny. A great cast.
