Documentary broadcast to mark 50 years since Dave Allen's seminal BBC series Dave Allen At Large.

Recorded when he was still alive, the show sees Dave Allen presenting a selection of his favourite monologues from across his career. Armed with his trademark props, he sits on a stool, sips his whisky and reflects on the idiocies of life, meditating on everything from the process of ageing through to the invasive tendencies of the modern telephone.
