Barry Evans was not Dirk Bogard!
31 March 2006 | by See all my reviews

The Picture of this show is one of DIRK BOGARD the actor, who starred in the earlier movies. The Movie collection has no relation to the TV series which did star Barry Evans, among others. The TV series was released in the 1970's on VCR, maybe 6 episodes from the first season. (It was wildly popular on PBS stations here in the USA but not as popular in the UK where it was produced by the wonderful London Weekend Television). So if you are looking for the Barry Evans TV series, written by some Monty Pythoners, & extremely funny, be aware of the difference. Unless you want the Movie Collection starring Dirk Bogard, I do not believe at present you can get a DVD of the Barry Evans TV series.
