  • Lord Emsworth is devoted to his prize pig, the Empress of Blandings, and to his home, Blandings Castle. But other people will keep claiming his time ...

    Having scored a hit with their Bertie Wooster and Jeeves adaptations starring Ian Carmichael and Dennis Price, the BBC naturally had a go at . Wodehouse's Blandings Castle stories, too, although the gentle humour of these tales is a little different, more charming and less laugh-out-loud funny. Alas, whereas Jeeves and Bertie lasted three years, Lord Emsworth and his prize pig managed only a six- episode run, and it was revealed long ago that the BBC, predictably and disgracefully, had wiped all but one of them in an economy drive. It was the only time in his long career that Sir Ralph Richardson did a television series, and he was - of course - wonderful in a part that he was born to play. His wife, Meriel Forbes, made a very rare TV appearance as his ghastly sister Lady Constance, whilst Stanley Holloway, ripe as old Stilton, was the butler, Beach.moreless
