Harry Enfield's 1989 Norbert Smith spoof British film legend mockumentary is currently uploaded to couchtripper's YT channel. As well as the legendary Renee Ascherson it has one of the last appearances of some the Carry On cast: Barbara Windsor, Kenneth Connor and Jack Douglas in a "Carry on Banging" sketch, a spoof CND protest at Greenham Common. Also appearances by Felicity Montagu and Josie Lawrence. Won't last long.

FWIW, it's also been uploaded by other people by YouTube and has been on there for quite a few years.

Indeed. I often watch the 'It's Grim Up North' bit. Comedy gold.

Love the "converted vicarage" gag

That upload is missing a bit. If you go to around 3:50 here, it's a punchline to the Man of Music segment.

It's missing on a few uploaded versions, I'm not sure why.

Sir Donald Stuffy is brilliant.

The Will Hay parody is absolutely perfect.

Melvyn Bragg is very good too, especially during the Dick Dotty interview.

Carry On Greenham Common is a fantastic concept. That was fun.

In 1989 Melvyn also played himself in the Mel Smith & Rowan Atkinson film The Tall Guy, presenting a show about a new musical about The Elephant Man. 58.50 in.

Didn't the subject of the punchline take legal action?

That would make sense. It's a shame though, rule of three and all that.

Just watched it all again this morning. Excellent work. Pitch perfect and not a bad sketch in it. My favourite has always been Keep Your Hair On, Daddio! for the absurdity of a song to teach him how to make a cup of tea.

I love the Where Eagle's Dare spoof with the glass of whisky business

I loved this when it first aired. As mentioned, the Will Hay segment was spot on.

Harry Enfield's best work.  Absolutely caned this on the VHS at the time.  Interesting that everyone seems to have nominated a different 'perfect' bit.  I have just rewatched it and it's a close call but "Oh, Mr. Bankrobber (1936)" has it for me, 35 years on.

What's the charge?  Robbing a bank.
