IF YOU COULD ASK JUST ‘ONE’ QUESTION....

Post by Howard Radcliff » Wed Jul 31, 2013 10:14 pm

I’ve been thinking of this for some time now. Given the very real possibility of meeting Franc Roddam, Ian La Frenais, Dick Clement and Allan Mckeown, what single burning question would you like to ask?

I’d love to know what Auf questions are on your minds... and you never know, they might just be answered...

^^^This, or how many more scenes were filmed and never made the final tv cut? It bugs me that scenes were filmed and haven't ever been aired. :evil:

Did you have an idea of what happened to lads at the end of the second series, as a third had been talked about?

i got to speak to dick clement briefly at the hilton and one of my questions to him was in series one and two how much of the actors own lines were used. and to my surprise he said every line was scripted and rehearsed to the letter. and then i asked him what about porrige and he said ronnie barker just did his own thing and was mostly always a better line. brill :)
