Written by Graham Chapman, Eric Idle and Barry Cryer, No, That’s Me Over Here! starred Ronald Balfour Corbett, getting his first taste of TV stardom as a little man from suburbia who always courted disaster and was constantly in terrible trouble at work.

Dressed sharply in his pin-stripe suit and bowler hat, and with his briefcase, umbrella and copy of The Times, Ronnie commuted into work each day on the train, together with his sniffy neighbour Henry (Henry McGee) who also worked at the same place, and for whom the term ‘office politics’ may well have been invented.

Although dropped after one season in 1968 when Rediffusion lost its ITV franchise, the series was picked up two years later by London Weekend Television.

Corbett and Rosemary Leach went on to reprise their spousal relationship in a couple of further Cryer/Chapman series for the BBC – Now Look Here . . . and its sequel The Prince Of Denmark.
