Sketch Scripts

Scope and Content

Scripts of sketches written by Ronnie Barker under the pseudonym Gerald Wiley for programmes such as Frost on Sunday and the radio show Lines on my Grandfather's Forehead. The scripts are numbered 1- 211. For some of the scripts there are duplicate copies or drafts, with the same number. Some, but not all scripts indicate which programme they were written or used for. There are three uncatalogued scripts and eight unnumbered scripts, which may include duplicate copies of numbered scripts. Where an author is not noted, Ronnie Barker has been supplied as the author.


The original order and numbering has been preserved in this sub series. Script numbers 50,125,132,192 and 209 are missing and never came in with the collection.
