Based on the stories of P.G. Wodehouse, the weekly British comedy series Ukridge was set during the 1930s. Anton Rodgers headed the cast as Stanley Featherstonehaugh Ukridge (pronounced "Fanshaw"), a man dedicated to the proposition of making a maximum of money with a minimum of effort. To this end, the hero pursued all sorts of businesses (boxing, dog training, insurance, etc.), never letting such details as ethics and honesty bother him. Whenever he came up short, as he always did, Ukridge could rely upon his pal, Corky, to lend him a bob or two. Originally broadcast by the BBC from July 15 to August 26, 1968, the seven videotaped episodes of Ukridge no longer exist.
