    Hi all,





    Anyone on here have ANY episodes of this show starring the late, great Alastair Sim? I keep seeing clips in various documentaries and I'm very intrigued.

    I think only 4 survive. I can help with two.

    Likewise, I can help with two, but probably they're the same two!

    I believe three episodes (of the four) are in the bfi archives.

    Hi Pete,

    Have sorted out a trade for these two episodes

    (1.6) Is Britain a Free Country (7/25/67)

    (3.1) The Usual Channel (7/30/71)

    Please let me know if you're two are any different, though, like you say, I shan't get hopes too high!

    Cheers

    A still from the lost episode How Free Is a Freeman?:



    L-R: Roy Dotrice, Reginald Marsh, John Lawrence and Bruno Barnabe.

    No details in the Daily Mirror, Express or Radio Times (BBC Genome).

    Nice picture, cornershop, though I think third along is Bert Sims rather than John Lawrence.

    Thanks, Gerald. This comparison should prove you're right:



    Heavens Above! (1963) and Misleading Cases (1971)


    John Lawrence in Fawlty Towers - The Germans (1975):
