I just happened across this 1970's comedy "Get Some In" on Youtube. I was aware of the comedy, but I had never seen it. So I started watching, and who should show up but none other than Talfryn Thomas as an RAF Corporal called Chalky! The show is very good, too.
I saw it (Get Some In) a long time ago but at my young age then probably didn't appreciate it very much. But it is quite good. It's probably one of those 'forgotten' shows, not actually forgotten completely, but it rarely gets a mention.
It's interesting it had David Janson in it, who later played the postman in Keeping Up Appearances, or if you don't like that show, he played the kid walking along the canal with Ringo in A Hard Days Night.

I have watched all of Series One on Youtube and am now into Series Two. It's a really fun show. And the writers, Esmonde and Larbey (of The Good Life fame) have gotten the Air Force lifestyle spot on. So many things in the show I recognise from my own RNZAF service. It looks like the entire series is on Youtube for those keen to enjoy it.
In the meantime, regarding Talfyn, another series he was really great in, and the series as a whole is a must watch, is Survivors. I completely loved that show when I finally got to watch it about 2-3 years back.
