Programme: All Gas and Gaiters
Filmed:
Episodes:
Starring:
Written by: Edwin Apps, Pauline Devaney
Synopsis: A clerical comedy in which the Dean tries unsuccessfully to bring some order and sanity to the daily happenings in and around the Cathedral of St Ogg's.
BSG Review: An intelligent and fondly remembered sitcom which gently extracted much laughter from the church-based premise.
Notes:

"All Gas and Gaiters" is a rare sitcom in that a radio version followed shortly after (instead of before) the TV version. It should be noted that the radio shows are very similar in content to the television episodes.

Sadly only eleven of the TV episodes survive, most were destroyed by the BBC in the 70s as film was very expensive in those days.
