Cor, Blimey! (ITV 2000, Samantha Spiro, Geoffrey Hutchings)

Period comedy drama Cor, Blimey! is an account of the real life relationship between Carry On film stars Sid James and Barbara Windsor. For years the much older Sid tried to persuade Barbara to have an affair with him and even proposed (although Barbara was married to underworld figure Ronnie Knight). Windsor makes a guest appearance as herself towards the end of the film and most of the actual Carry On team are impersonated.
