Helped - and hampered - by his diligent Permanent Secretary Sir Humphrey Appleby (Nigel Hawthorne) and his Principle Private Secretary Bernard Woolley (Derek Fowlds), Hacker and his department became synonymous with government bureaucracy and administrative double dealing.

    Do Not Adjust Your Set is a 60s comedy show comprised mostly of satirical sketches, often presented in a bizarre, surreal and disjointed manner - much like that of Monty Python's Flying Circus, a subsequent show which several of the cast became part of. An important Monty Python predecessor and arguably one of the finest children's sketch comedies ever produced, DNAYS is certainly something you do not want to miss....

    Yes, it's hello again from them. For nearly 25 years The Two Ronnies were a TV institution, a much-loved double-act, each with his own inimitable, individual appeal. Who could forget Barker's hilarious 'pispronunciation', Corbett's witty monologues, the risque limericks, the puns, the patter, and the parody? So enjoy another fun-filled feast of verbal fireworks. Inspired classic comedy from the two one-offs who said goodnight but not goodbye.

    Webster's Dictionary gives the meaning of the word "miasma" as "an infection floating in the air; a deadly exhalation". And in the opinion of Mr. Robert Ferguson, that description, though perhaps a little too flattering, on the whole summed up Master Roland Bean pretty satisfactorily. Until the previous day, Master Bean had served Mr. Ferguson in the capacity of office-boy. But there was that about Master Bean which made it practically impossible for anyone to employ him for long.
