    This originally was a comedy play on TV but also formed a segment in The Magnificent Seven Deadly Sins (Pride, I think).



    Here from Wiki:



    The fifth segment, "Pride", written by Alan Simpson and Ray Galton, features Ian Carmichael, Alfie Bass, Audrey Nicholson, Sheila Bernette, Robert Gillespie, Keith Smith and Ivor Dean. In it, two motorists (Carmichael and Bass) meet facing each other on a narrow country road, and neither is willing to pull aside to let the other pass. In the end, neither wins.



    This was a reworking of the writers' Impasse episode in the second (1963) series of Comedy Playhouse. It was remade again in 1996 as an episode of Paul Merton In Galton & Simpson's...

    EDIT - Too late, but this was the original query:



    This is a long shot as I think it is earlier than the 70s...

    Hope you can help.

    Black and white-short film.

    Narrow country lane.Posh car and less posh car / works van.

    Neither will back up for the other.

    Posh bloke.Thought of Ian Carmichael...Checked on IMBD and Wiki,couldn't find anything.

    Less posh bloke,possibly with a flat cap.Thought of Charlie Drake,Ronnie Corbett...

    I know it is slightly famous...

    It's driving me nuts !!



    Has anyone any ideas please??



    Many thanks




    The Magnificent Seven Deadly Sins (1971) - Segment: Pride



    You were right about Ian Carmichael as the "posh bloke". Alfie Bass played his working-class rival. Written by Galton and Simpson.
