Open All Hours : Seasons 1 to 4
SEASON ONE (originally aired 20/02/1976 - 26/03/1976) - Ronnie Barker stars as Arkwright, the stuttering grocer, in the first series of this classic cornershop comedy. Arkwright's urge to take money from his customers by fair means or foul is second only to his need to prevent his nephew, Granville, from discovering a world beyond the clang of the shop bell... And of course, his consuming passion for Nurse Gladys Emmanuel.
SEASON TWO (originally aired 01/03/1981 - 19/04/1981) - Ronnie Barker's tight-fisted shopkeeper Arkwright continues to risk amputation that replace his death trap of a till. As Nurse Gladys Emmanuel, the owner of an awesome bosom and an old Morris Minor, deflates his amorous advances, Arkwright seeks solace in his over-worked, sexually and socially-frustrated nephew and errand boy, G-G-G-Granville.
SEASON THREE (originally aired 21/03/1982 - 25/04/1982) - Ronnie Barker's stuttering shopkeeper Arkwright lives for just three things - a regularly ringing till, a glimpse of Nurse Gladys Emmanuel's more than ample bosom and making the life of nephew and errand boy, G-G-G-Granville ever more miserable...
SEASON FOUR (originally aired 01/09/1985 - 06/10/1985) - Ronnie Barker's great creation Arkwright continues to mind the store where the only thing going cheap is talk. The elusive Nurse Gladys Emmanuel is still there to drive him to distraction, while delivery boy Granville just yearns for a trendy girlfriend, a high-powered executive job, a sports car or even a new bell on his bicycle.
