Item Description

It's a crying shame that only one series of six episodes was made of the Steam Video Company. The programmes starred the same repertory cast of comic actors in a variety of roles. The cast included: William Franklyn, Barry Cryer, Anna Dawson, Bob Todd, Madeline Smith and Jimmy Mulville. It couldn't have lasted, but while it did, it was glorious.
