On the Rocks reply to re heated porridge

The last comment about the bit that the BBC could not have afforded to do is wrong, they did that bit at Leeds Football ground when an inmate is released and Fletch and Blanco (David Jason from Only Fools & Horses) conspire to fool him.

Happy Release (Originally Transmitted 14 Nov 1975)Fletcher is enjoying a stay in hospital but has to stay in the ward with the unpleasant Norris. Norris is due to be released and Fletch cons him into buying a treasure map with the possessions he took off old lag Blanco Webb. Norris hilariously finds himself digging for treasure in the middle of Leeds United's football pitch.
