The Original Carry On Forever on BBC iPlayer

The original Carry On Forever documentary is now available to view on the BBC iPlayer. The short film was produced for the BBC Film Night programme and went behind the scenes of the latest Carry On film, Up The Jungle.

As well as some priceless behind the scenes footage of making a Carry On, the programme features tongue in cheek interviews with the stars of the film, Sidney James, Terry Scott, Joan Sims, Kenneth Connor, Frankie Howerd, Bernard Bresslaw and newcomer Jacki Piper. The film's director, the legendary Gerald Thomas, is also interviewed and talks about the ongoing success of the film series. 

It's an interesting and very rare chance to see some of our favourite Carry On stars at work and at play. You can view it here 

Here's hoping the ITV documentary of the same name from earlier this year will soon be made available on DVD!
