6/8 - Sorry!
It may have been as edgy as a tin of shortbread rounds but Sorry! was one of the finest sitcoms of the 1980s, a splendidly bittersweet fusion of middle-aged angst, maternal duplicity and, in Ronnie Corbett's doggedly jolly Timothy Lumsden, one of TV's most endearing underdogs. Here, Corbett and the series' writers, Peter Vincent and Ian Davidson, twiddle their Variety Club cufflinks and guffaw like lovely big drains as they discuss the creative ins and corporate outs of the long-running series. While clips remind us of the priceless set-up - a 40-something librarian's dreams of independence are constantly thwarted by his overbearing, embittered mother - we hear about the genesis of The Catchphrase ("Language, Timothy!") and the reason why, according to a jubilant Corbett, "Kingsley Amis said it was his favourite sitcom!"
