Hi-De-Hi

UK sitcom set in a typical British holiday camp of the 50s and 60s called Maplins. The characters included Ted Bovis (Paul Shane) the vulgar comic, his understudy Spike, Barry and Yvonne the arrogant dance teachers, dippy chalet maid Peggy and assistant manager Gladys Pugh.

The series was extremely successful and ran for eight years. Several of the cast later went on to appear in another Jimmy Perry and David Croft comedy "You Rang, M'Lord"

    I loved the seris first time around. I enjoy even more now as I am now old enough to get more of the the adult jokes.

    I love Hi-de-Hi. I find it funnier now than I did when I watched it all those years ago. Ive bought the series on DVD and Peggy still had me crying, Gladys is hilarious, Yvonne and Barry are just the best. I love them all. Not only is it funny, its a good look at how life was so simple...innocent times long gone. It really reminds me of my hols to Butlins, I just wish they did a 70's version too filmed in an old camp like Barry Island!! Fabulous stuff, thank you Jimmy Perry and David Croft and of course the Hi-De-Hi cast. Long live Hi-de-Hi. November 2006

    I watched Hi De Hi when it was first aired and I remember I found it fun and enjoyable. However, since I bought the series on video (check out the Ebay shops) I've found that I've not just re-discovered the fun I had watching it but also just how well crafted and funny the programme actually was. In some ways I find it funnier than Dad's Army.
