The Rag Trade

It's so rare to see Peter Jones acting that I had to buy The Rag Trade when I saw it on DVD in the shop.

It also features another JAM great Sheila Hancock, as well as guest Miriam Karlin. Other well-known names are Reg Varney and Barbara Windsor.

The show is from the early 60s and in black and white. The concept has dated - it is about a small factory where it's really the union that runs everything. Peter plays a bumbling boss.

But... that comic timing is all there, which makes it worthwhile. Sheila is great too, and cor, she was a looker back then!
