Hark at Barker

A sitcom/sketch vehicle for Ronnie Barker's great talents, created by Alun Owen and written by a distinguished team that included Alan Ayckbourn and Barker himself, credited under pseudonyms. Each episode begins with a spoof LWT continuity announcement featuring Barker, who then stars as Lord Rustless, a decrepit peer who lectures the viewer on a different subject each week. His points are illustrated by surreal filmed sketches.
