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".
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.
