A notable presence in the British film industry for several decades and a key director of 1970s film comedies – including outings for Frankie Howerd, Alf Garnett and Danny la Rue – Bob Kellett also produced four of the funniest short films ever made for British cinema.

Starring Ronnie Barker, Richard Briers, Bernard Cribbins, Barbara Windsor, David Lodge, Wilfrid Brambell, Joan Sims and Michael Hordern, these films were "wordless" – their humour carried by performance, sound effects and music – and have all been newly restored by Network's in-house award-wining Restoration Team from original film elements in their original as-exhibited aspect ratio.
