Just William - Series 1
Scruffy, crafty but utterly likeable - that's William, Richmal Crompton's famous fictional schoolboy whose adventures have delighted generations. Made in 1977, this definitive production of the stories, set in the 1920s, feature Adrian Dannatt as William, along with his gang, the Outlaws - Ginger, Henry and Douglas. Bane of parents everywhere, only one thing was guaranteed to turn him in his tracks - the dreaded Violet Elizabeth Bott (Bonnie Langford) whose masterplan, should William not give in to her demands, was to "...thcweam and thcweam and thcweam until I'm thick..."
A thundering success with children and parents alike, Just William featured a high calibre of guest stars, with the first series including Diana Dors, Freddie Jones, Julian Fellowes and Ronald Lacey.
