The Best Of Ronnie Barker DVD
A tribute to the comic hero of The Two Ronnies, Porridge and Open all Hours. Ronnie Barker was a favourite fixture on the small screens of the nation for over 30 years. Despite an early retirement in 1988, his popularity never declined and, 15 years later, public pressure demanded his eventual return. For many, his greatest work came in The Two Ronnies (1971-88); sketches that contrasted his style with Ronnie Corbett and in his brilliant solo sports as government ministers, civil servants or clergymen with some bizarre plan or initiative. Meanwhile as seasoned lag Norman Stanley Fletcher in the great sitcom Porridge (1973-77) or as corner shop owner Arkwright in Open All Hours (1973-1985), Ronnie Barker demonstrated his true genius as a character actor. Even in less-successful series like Clarence (1988) or The Magnificent Evans (1984), Barker's performances were flawless, testament to the great talent of a true hero of British comedy.
