Now Look Here is a BBC situation comedy which ran for two series of seven episodes each during 1971 to 1973. It was written by Barry Cryer.

It starred Ronnie Corbett, who played a character of the same name. He was in a rather similar role to that which he played in the later, longer-running and better-known situation comedy, Sorry!, as an overgrown mother's boy who was trying to break away from his mother (played by Madge Ryan) but having some difficulty doing so. However it differs from the later series in that he does leave home after a few episodes, although his new home is only a few doors away, his father is deceased and he does not have any siblings. In the second series he was married (his wife played by Rosemary Leach). His boss was played by Donald Hewlett.

All episodes still exist, although one of these survived in the American NTSC standard, from which it has been converted.[1]

The Prince Of Denmark[edit]

In 1974 following the end of Now Look Here a short-lived sequel was made, called The Prince Of Denmark. In it Ronnie left his job as an insurance salesman to become a publican and was assisted in this new role by his wife Laura.
