David Jason: My Life on Screen

Sir David Jason looks back at five decades on screen

This three-part series looks back at the career of Sir David Jason, with the opening instalment explaining how he ended up starring in his first TV series, 1967’s Do Not Adjust Your Set.

Writer and co-stars Michael Palin, Eric Idle and Terry Jones moved on to Monty Python, while Sir David began a long association with Ronnie Barker in Hark at Barker.

‘I owe him a great deal,’ he muses – he also went on to join Ronnie in Porridge and, of course, Open All Hours (and had a surprising role in The Two Ronnies).

Packed with clips, interviews with co-stars and a guided tour from Sir David himself, this is an absolute treat. Continues tomorrow and Monday.
