TV Men of Affairs (ITV 1973-1974, Warren Mitchell, Brian Rix) Published 2 years ago on January 29, 2017 Sitcom Men of Affairs looked at the misadventures of a government minister and his parliamentary private secretary. Sir William Mainwaring-Brown (Warren Mitchell) is the Minister For European Affairs. He’s also a sex-mad womaniser whose extra-marital affairs constantly threaten to ruin his parliamentary career. Barry Ovis (Brian Rix) is Sir William’s gormless Parliamentary Private Secretary. His job mainly seems to involve trying to cover up for Sir William’s sexual exploits. Although 17 episodes were made, only 13 were ever transmitted. Men of Affairs was loosely based on writer Pertwee’s long-running stage farce, Don’t Just Lie There, Say Something. production details UK / ITV – HTV / 13×25 minute episodes / Broadcast 3 Oct 1973 – 23 Jan 1974 Writer: Michael Pertwee / Producer: Wallace Douglas / Executive Producer: Patrick Dromgoole cast WARREN MITCHELL as Sir William BRIAN RIX as Barry Ovis MP JOAN SIMS as Lady Mainwaring-Brown Brian RixHTVITVJoan SimsMichael PertweePatrick DromgooleSitcomsTVWarren Mitchell Advertisement advertisement and this just in TV14 hours ago This Is Personal: The Hunt for the Yorkshire Ripper (ITV 2000, Alun Armstrong, Richard Ridings) Period crime drama serial.
