    Synopsis:
    Carry On star Sid James stars as Citizen James in the hilarious 1960s TV comedy series.

    Sid James as Sid and Bill Kerr as Bill, are joined by Liz Fraser as Liz, Sid's long-suffering fiancée, and a supporting cast that includes Sydney Tafler, John Bluthal, Patricia Hayes, Bob Todd, Frank Thornton, Irene Handl, Lance Percival, Derek Nimmo and film star Cecil Parker.

    In Series One, written by Alan Simpson and Ray Galton (Hancock, Steptoe & Son), Sid James is the hard-working layabout, gambler and con artist, hanging out in Charlie's Nosh Bar and on the Soho streets, occasionally stopping off at Liz's drinking club to borrow money to pay off his gambling debts and cons gone wrong.

    In Series Two and Three written by Sid Green and Dick Hills (Morecambe & Wise), Sid is now accompanied by Sydney Tafler in the new role of Sid's mate Charlie, as they take on teenagers, watch dogs, trial by jury and a very crusty loaf.

    These are the only known surviving episodes and comprise the complete Series One, along with two episodes each from Series Two and Three
