What a Carry On this Easter on ITV3: Saturday 15th April

ITV3 haven't let us down this Easter! The channel, which now feels like the home of all things Carry On, is showing some fantastic classic Carry Ons over the Easter weekend.

There are back to back Carry On films on the channel from Good Friday, so here, without further ado, is the all important ITV3 Carry On Schedule for Saturday 15th April:

07.20 - 09.20 - Carry On Screaming (1966)

One of my all time favourite Carry On films, this Hammer Horror send up sees a prime cast of regular Carry On actors (Kenneth Williams, Jim Dale, Joan Sims, Peter Butterworth) joined by fantastic guest stars Fenella Fielding and Harry H Corbett. A joy from beginning to end.

09.20 - 11.30 - Carry On Cowboy (1965)

The Carry On team give American accents a bash in this glorious western romp. Sid James stars as the Rumpo Kid with Jim Dale as the English Sanitary Engineer Marshall P Knutt. Joan Sims shines as saloon owner Belle while the rogues gallery includes first Carry On appearances for Peter Butterworth, Bernard Bresslaw and Angela Douglas.


13.15 - 15.05 - Carry On Abroad (1972)

Time for one of my very favourites in the series as the gang depart for a four day trip to the Spanish island of Elsbells for the most disastrous package holiday ever! All the regular 1970s faces are present for this non-stop, laugh a minute fun fest! Stand out performances from Sid and Joan, Kenneth Connor and June Whitfield as well as the wonderful Peter Butterworth as the stressed out hotelier Pepe, or is it Mario?! This film also features Charles Hawtrey's Carry On swansong.


15.05 - 17.05 - Carry On Doctor (1967)

Probably my favourite medical Carry On which sees a full compliment of legendary cast members run havoc in the wards! Frankie Howerd guest stars in the first of two appearances in the series and is joined by a host of familiar faces including Charles Hawtrey, Peter Butterworth, Sid James and Bernard Bresslaw. They unite to take on the corrupt Kenneth Williams and Hattie Jacques (reprising her role as Matron) in the hope of reinstating kind doctor Jim Dale.

17.05 - 19.00 - Carry On Behind (1975)

Probably the last half-decent film in the series, this saucy 70s Carry On Camping update misses the likes of James, Jacques and Windsor but it still boasts a cast which includes Kenneths Williams and Connor, Joan Sims, Bernard Bresslaw, Peter Butterworth and Patsy Rowlands. Elke Sommer and Windsor Davies join the fun for the first time while Liz Fraser makes a return to the series for the first time since Carry On Cabby twelve years earlier.
