I Didn’t Get Where I Am Today By Knowing The Difference Between Foreign Countries

So farewell then, John Barron: obituary in today’s Guardian.

By one of those funny coincidences, Jo and I have just finished watching our way through The Fall and Rise of Reginald Perrin, two episodes at a time, me for the second time, she for the first, on DVD. And there is still much joy to be had from John Barron’s performance as C.J., boss of Sunshine Desserts…

C.J.: We aren’t one of those dreadful firms where people can engage willy- nilly in hanky-panky with their secretaries.�Reginald Perrin: Certainly not, C.J.

C.J.: Neither Mrs. C.J. nor I have ever engaged willy- nilly in hanky-panky with their secretaries.�

Perrin: I imagine not, C.J.

More scripts, etc., here.
