After a random conversation on Friday, I spent a small chunk of the weekend watching The Plank, with Eric Sykes and Tommy Cooper. You can see it here on YouTube:
I love the titles, love the story and love all the cameos… Thought it was this version I remember watching with my granddad, but Eric Sykes remade it in 1979 (with Arthur Lowe) , he also remade Rhubarb in 1979 too, that will be the next one to dig out…

Nickelodeon Presents Ross Lee’s Ghoulies was a Saturday morning show on Nick that ran for 12 weeks in the Autumn 2008.
Users got to enter Filthy Manor and experience all of what the Ghouliverse and the many faces of Ross Lee had to offer.
The site was devised in a way to get kids interested in the show ahead of transmission, and maintain interest through it’s TX. Throughout the 12 week run more games and activities were unlocked, with more audience submissions and more videos direct from the show included. Content sent into the site, then featured in later shows…
All the video used on the site was shot hi-def on a green screen (a bit like Star Wars, but cheaper). At the time of the shoot Filthy Manor didn’t physically exist, so that footage was dropped into flash along with renditions of the set from the show’s production company, Running Bare Pictures.
Below are some shots from the shoot, before my pals at Ralph did their flash magic…
