The Bargee

Digitally restored, The Bargee is about Hemel Pike: part of a dying breed, he's a narrow boat trader, and the only way they'll get him off the canals is if they fill them in. He also has a reputation to keep up as the notorious Casanova of the canals. But his way with the women soon gets him trouble when one of his many squeezes falls pregnant. Suddenly Hemel Pike find himself persuaded by her protective, hot headed, drunken father eager to chase her up the aisle.

Written by Ray Galton and Alan Simpson (Hancock's Half Hour, Steptoe & Son), The Bargee stars Harry H. Corbett, supported by the likes of Eric Sykes, Ronnie Barker, Derek Nimmo, Brian Wilde, Richard Briers, Miriam Karlin and Hugh Griffith.

First released: Monday 15th March 2010
