All Gas And Gaiters - The Complete Series 1 & 2
TV's first ecclesiastical comedy, All Gas And Gaiters was enjoyed by over 10 million viewers on BBC One between 1966 and 1971. Written by husband-and-wife-team Pauline Devaney and Edwin Apps, it was so popular that every one of its scripts was revised and re-recorded for radio with (largely) the same star cast as the television series.
Robertson Hare starred as the Archdeacon of the fictional St Ogg's Cathedral. An elderly gentleman fond of a tipple and with an eye for the ladies, he shares the cloisters with his clerical companions, the easy-going Bishop (William Mervyn) and the naïve, accident-prone Chaplain (Derek Nimmo and Jonathan Cecil). All they want is a quiet life - but this wish is constantly thwarted by the overbearing Dean (John Barron) and all too often, chaos and confusion abound as they are caught up in a series of hilarious misadventures.

If ordering from a UK store, please note that you are in Region 1 (DVD)/Region A (Blu-ray), whilst the UK is in Region 2/B, respectively. This means that many - but by no means all - may fail to play. Look for products marked "Region free", "All regions", "Region 0" or "Multi-region". Blu-rays may also be marked "Region A/B/C", "Region free", or variations thereof. You may also check whether your DVD/Blu-ray player supports multi-region playback (also referred to as "region free"), or whether it can be set to do so. There should, of course, be no problems with books, CDs, or other physical items.
