Blott on the Landscape

Another corking series, which transformed the bawdy Tom Sharpe novel into a televisual romp: witness Geraldine James baring her breasts, George Cole stripped and tied to a bed for a spanking by Julia McKenzie and Simon Cadell streaking through the woods! The title sequence gives a brilliant animated précis of the story, accompanied by David Mackay and Vivian Fisher's memorable theme tune. The six episodes ran on BBC2 on Saturday nights, during February & March 1985.
