Idiot Prison Officers Arnold Clissitt (John Sharp) and Leslie Mills (Ken Jones) have the unenviable task of looking after the two most troublesome long-term lags:
Pongo Little (John Nettleton) may look fat and easy-going but he is reputed to be the most astute conman who ever sold a gold brick in the Strand. And Mushy Williams (John Normington) isn’t nearly as simple as he looks.
This situation comedy from Granada debuted on 25 September 1968 and aired on Wednesday nights (Thursdays for the second series).
