Hemel Pike is part of a dying breed, he's a British narrow boat trader, and the only way they'll get him off the canals is if they fill them in. He also has a reputation to keep up as the notorious Casanova of the canals. But his way with the women soon gets him trouble when one of his many squeezes falls pregnant. Suddenly Hemel Pike find himself persuaded by her protective, hot headed, drunken father eager to chase her up the aisle.
Created by legendary comedy writing duo Ray Galton and Alan Simpson (Steptoe and Son, Hancock's Half Hour), The Bargee stars some of the most iconic comedians of British TV and film, including: Eric Sykes (Sykes Versus ITV), Harry H Corbett (Steptoe and Son), Ronnie Barker (Porridge, Open All Hours), Derek Nimmo (Oh Brother) and Richard Briers (The Good Life). Beautifully shot, wonderfully nostalgic and funny, The Bargee is a forgotten British gem with a cast of comedy heroes.
