Whoops Baghdad!
Frankie Howerd
Derek Francis

This short-live series was a follow-up to Howerd's earlier TV show "Up Pompeii", with the location transplanted from Ancient Rome to Medieval Baghdad. As with "Pompeii", the set-up was little more than a backdrop for an endless series of Howerds' trademark double entendres and risqué gags, and he starts each episode with a prologue "to camera" that almost always never gets finished and has nothing at all to do with the main plot. 1973 6 x 30

Up Pompeii (SERIES)
Frankie Howerd Classic 1960's SERIES. 8 Episodes (of 12).

WANTED. In 2007 BBC Four showed all 12 episodes plus the pilot. I recorded 8 of them and want the others. My problem is that I don't know exactly which I've got as they were un-named. If you know of a list of each episode with summaries then please let me know. Thanks.

TV show spin-off FILM

A funny thing happens to Roman slave Lurcio (Frankie Howerd) on the way to the rent-a-vestal-virgin market stall: he inadvertently becomes the possessor of a scroll listing the names of the conspirators plotting to murder Emporer Nero (Patrick Cargill). Serving the guests at his master's orgies suddenly seems easy compared to the trouble the scroll brings: the upstart slave is elected to act as a spy and infiltrate the ring-leader's circle! Much comical uproar ensues, but all are in for a nasty shock when Mount Vesuvius decides to erupt!
