    Aimed at a young audience but hugely popular with children and adults alike, Pardon My Genie was devised and written by future Roberts Robots and Rentaghost creator Bob Block.

    When a young shop assistant called Hal Adden casually tries to polish an old watering can - well, you can guess what happens! But the genie who appears is as rusty as the can he lives in; he's four thousand years old, and his magic doesn't always work as well as it should...

    Ellis Jones plays Hal, with Roy Barraclough (Sez Les) starring as his long-suffering boss, hardware shop owner Mr Cobbledick, and Hugh Paddick (Round the Horne) as the Genie. This first series of the memorably quirky comedy series, screened in 1972, is available on DVD for the first time.
