In the tradition of Buster Keaton & Charlie Chaplin comes Eric Sykes and his famous comedy players. These one-off specials are the pinnacle of Sykes output and some of the most fondly remembered television comedies from the 70s and 80s featuring Sykes brilliant use of visual humour, all based on a single premise.

THE PLANK
Joined by Arthur Lowe (Dad’s Army), Sykes is in need of a single plank of wood to complete the floor in his house, but transporting “the plank” from the builders yard to the construction site sees them involved in one scrape after another as a cavalcade of British comedy stars hinder their efforts.

THE PLANK is joined on DVD by 3 other Eric Sykes dialogue free comic masterpieces made for Thames Television during the eighties including:

RHUBARB RHUBARB!

IT’S YOUR MOVE
A pair of newlyweds soon discover their removal firm (comprising of Eric Sykes & Tommy Cooper) aren’t the most careful or reliable of firms.
MR. H. IS LATE
Undertaker Eric Sykes must navigate the removal of a body from the 26th floor of a block of flats in time for its funeral at the church.
