Summary

"To get a job where the only thing you have to do in your career is to make people laugh...well, it's the best job in the world," says Ronnie Barker.

And few are better at it, as this compilation of highlights from over three decades in radio and television shows. From his early radio career in shows such as The Navy Lark and Lines From My Grandfather's Forehead to his television successes The Frost Report, Porridge, Open All Hours, and, of course, The Two Ronnies, it's Barker at his brilliant best.

Disappointing but funny no narrative

Really just old clips of Ronnie Barker which you could pick up two thirds of, on repeated tv specials of Ronnie.Porridge, Open all hours the two Ronnies etc.Really quite disappointing but of course comedy genius.
