Comedy Premiere: What A Turn Up (ITV 1975, Anton Rodgers, Bernard Lee)



Comedy. Wally Warner returns home to England for his grandaughter’s wedding. Although Dennis Spooner and Brian Clemens are best known for their action adventure series for ITC and ITV they actually spent much of the early 1960s writing comedy for people like Tony Hancock so it is no great surprise to see their names as script writers here.
