As funny as any TV. Do watch it. Ustinov's narration is wonderful and the rest of the cast is just as good. Joyously the cast do not attempt an "Allo, Allo" type accent but speak naturally which only adds to the charm of the piece. The village it was filmed in it was not, apparently, the village Chevallier based the story in but those who know think that it's much prettier. One thing that stands out in this, and most other quality entertainment, is the sheer joy apparent in every frame - the cast and crew obviously had a whale of a time! Galton and Simpson, the writers, were inspired by the French film and wrote the only screenplay that was not adapted from their own work or original to them. This is what TV is all about, films cannot have the intimacy shown here.
