Haven't got Sony Classic (we are poor you know), but did manage to get a cheap S/H DVD of The Wrong Box off eBay.

It's on Freeview 51.

Agree! Love Gordon Harker, especially in the superb, but sadly short-lived, Inspector Hornleigh films. - WITH non other than Alastair Sim (!!!) as his sergeant. Very funny films. :D

Watching Saloon Bar (again!) earlier reminded me that, interestingly, the voice of Lady Penelope's chauffeur, Parker, was inspired by Gordon Harker's vocal delivery.

Not a lot of people know that...................and we're probably the only ones on here who are fans.

I think the first one is a repeat, but have already set the digi-box to record them both - I also think the TSPB is a short series?

Tuesday 12.30pm TPTV - Saloon Bar, an enjoyable whodunnit with Gordon Harker, Mervyn Johns, Alec Clunes (father of Martin) and Felix Aylmer. Anything with Gordon Harker in is always a good watch.

Seen it before, but Gordon Harker is in "Small Hotel" on Tues 2/3 10:30 am TPTV.
