Norman Stanley FletcherLeonard Arthur GodberOn Sunday 1 April 1973 an episode of a Ronnie Barker series entitled Seven of One was shown on BBC1.  It was called Prisoner and Escort and entailed the journey of a newly convicted criminal to a remote prison in Cumbria (or Cumberland as it was known then).

That criminal was Norman Stanley Fletcher and this one off show was followed by three series, two Christmas specials and a full length feature film.

Interestingly, during the same series, Seven of One, there was an episode concerning a northern shopkeeper who went by the name of Arkwright. The rest, as they say, is history.
