Here's Harry - The Complete Surviving Episodes
Harry Worth forged an award-winning stage and screen persona as a bumbling fusspot out of sync with a fast-changing society. After many years on the variety circuit, his first TV series, The Trouble With Harry (1960), cast him as a would-be novelist failing to make any sense of the world around him. But his second show Here's Harry (1960-65), and a writing team led by Vince Powell and Harry Driver (Love Thy Neighbour, Bless This House), went back to basics to cast an indelible mould and cement his popularity.
In each episode Worth is pitted against figures of petty authority such as customs officers, railway staff, doctors, lawyers or policemen, who are increasingly exasperated by his unfathomable babbling. His amiable but bewildered persona paved the way for the equally hapless Frank Spencer (Some Mothers Do 'Ave 'Em), and an altogether angrier Victor Meldrew (One Foot In The Grave).
Of 60 episodes broadcast, only eleven survive: ten have been kept in the BBC archives, and an eleventh discovered in 2016 by Kaleidoscope; with story lines ranging from comical attempts to book a holiday, celebrate a birthday or arrange an overdraft, to the accidental theft of a policeman's bicycle.
Gentle, genial comedy gold from the original meddlesome muddler.

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", 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.
