Scotch and Wry 4 - Prince of Pochlers
This is the fourth and final compilation of the long-running BBC Scotland sketch show starring the late Rikki Fulton (1924-2004). Supercop, McGlinchey and of course, the Reverend I M Jolly are all back along with a host of hilarious take-offs including Robin Hood and Gone with the Wind.
Scotch and Wry was a Scottish comedy sketch show which was broadcast on BBC ONE Scotland and starred Rikki Fulton. After two series, in 1978 and 1979, the programme continued as a regular part of the channel's Hogmanay celebrations between 1980 and 1992.
Very much a regional comedy show, the focus of Scotch and Wry was on predominantly Scottish (and in particular Glaswegian) humour - the viewer had to be familiar with the Glasgow Patter in order to understand many of the jokes. As a result, much of the humour was constructed around distinctly Glaswegian themes; such as the city's suburbs, its football clubs, and even its famous sectarian divide was also played for laughs. In later episodes, less of an emphasis was placed on this, and the writers began to draw on major news events that had happened during the previous year as their basis.
