Those of you that may be interested may have seen Arkrights corner shop is back to our screens on boxing day.Granville(David Jason) is now the owner some 28yrs after the last episode was originally shown,i cannot wait for this timely classic in hope it will capture the essence of Ronnie barker

I find that, usually, resurrections of great classic shows turn out to be a flop as expectations are high. With David Jason, though, this might be an exception and I hope so.

Thanks for the timely 'heads up', mart7 ... I will be 'able and willing' to watch it. DJ is a superb performer.

Hello mart7, it is a job to know where to post this, here or spuds thread or brumas's. I met Ronnie Barker in a junk shop in Ickenham. I was just having a browse myself. A pleasant enough man and when I asked him what he was looking for he told me old postcards as he collected them.

bumpkin ,Ronnie Barker has wrote at least 7, to my knowledge, books about postcards. Fran has them all and tells me they useful, very interesting, risque but at the same time tasteful!

I have just had a quick perusal of a couple, purely for research purposes and must admit he did have taste ;o}]
