Up Pompeii: The Complete BBC Collection

Frankie Howerd shines in this, the complete series (and more!) of his classic TV show. Howerd is the lazy, sex-crazed slave Lurcio who's constantly getting himself in and out of naughty scrapes in the anything-goes world of Ancient Rome. Join Lurcio and his friends and enemies Ludicrus Sextus, Ammonia, Nausius, Erotica and James Bondus for some wink-wink nudge-nudge British humour! Featuring puns and double entendres galore, this collection includes: Comedy Playhouse (The Original Pilot Episode) (1969), Series One (1970), Series Two (1970) and Further Up Pompeii (1975). In the words of Lurcio himself: "You won't get anything like this in your Harold Pinter."
