No That’s Me Over Here (ITV Sitcom, Ronnie Corbett)

Published

on


In sitcom No That’s Me Over Here, city commuter Ronnie (Ronnie Corbett) longs for a higher social standing and is desperate to put one over on his neighbour Henry (Henry McGee).

The series was Ronnie Corbett first as lead having made his name on The Frost Report (David Frost executive produced and Marty Feldman was one of the producers). The format was to become something of a Corbett staple for the next decade, the little man in suburbia with big ideas that never come off. He would go on to work with Rosemary Leach (as well as Barry Cryer and co) on the similar Now Look Here and it’s sequel The Prince of Denmark)

The Monty Python connection was strong with No That’s Me Over Here, many of the scripts were written by Graham Chapman and Eric Idle (series one anyway, Idle then dropped out), along with Barry Cryer. The first two season aired on Associated Rediffusion, the third and final season aired two years later on London Weekend Television (Rediffusion had lost their ITV regional franchise in 1968).
