Sorry!
1982 BBC Television
The Timothy Lumsden character became a byword for single men living with their parents well past thirty. Ronnie Corbett scored his biggest sitcom success as the shy librarian manipulated into a sense of obligation to his domineering mother yet also desiring to escape. Interplay between Corbett and Barbara Lott as Mrs Lumsden was both humourous and dark in contemplation of Tim's predicament. Gaynor Colbourn and Hugh Wisdom composed the acclaimed title music.

South Of The Border
1985 Yorkshire Television
Comedy starring Brian Glover, Belinda Sinclair, Robin Parkinson, Maggie Jones, Mossie Smith and Christopher Godwin. The series was written by Peter Tinniswood.

Accident-prone, childlike, unemployable champion of the beige tank top Frank Spencer (Michael Crawford) somehow managed to wed - and conceive a child with(!) - the lovely Betty (Michele Dotrice). Ronnie Hazlehurst spelled out the name of the programme in Morse code on the piccolo to provide distinctive theme music. Both brilliantly and dubiously, Crawford made number 17 in the BBC's 100 Greatest Britons poll. Fans of his illustrious stage career may well have voted strongly, but you just know it had more to do with him ducking under a lorry while on rollerskates.
