This play premiered as a sitcom on BBC in December 1982.  85 episodes were made and it ran until December 1992 across 9 seasons.  I was present on the first night. It was quickly apparent that the innovative way the languages were portrayed faithfully followed those set by the BBC production.  Special mention must be made of Graham Turner (Rene Artois) and Tom Pavey(Officer Crabtree)

The pace of the lines,  lighting, set and costumes were of an excellent standard.
