Porridge (1979 Ronnie Barker, Richard Beckinsale)

Ronnie Barker, Richard Beckinsale and Fulton Mackay star in this spin-off feature from the much-loved TV sitcom. Cell-mates Fletch and Godber (Barker and Beckinsale) find themselves on the wrong side of the bars when they're inadvertently bundled out of Slade Prison during someone else's escape. Somehow they've got to break back in before warder Mackay (Mackay) notices their absence.
