Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Adapted by David Nobbs from his own novel, the British miniseries The Life and Times of Henry Pratt was set in the not-so-distant past, when class distinctions were literally "everything." Despite a paucity of wit and the proper connections, Yorkshire boy Henry Pratt (Jack Deam) managed to breeze through life by the seat of his pants, aided and abetted by a vast array of bizarre friends and eccentric relatives. Among the familiar faces in the supporting cast was Stratford Johns as the palindromic-named A.B. Noon, B.A. The first of the four 60-minute episodes of The Life and Times of Henry Pratt was shown by Granada Television on November 9, 1992.
