Reigning supreme for almost a decade as ITV's biggest comedian, Arthur Haynes was one of the most influential and popular comics that television has ever seen. His shows remained firmly in the top ten until his untimely death in 1966 robbed the world of a comedy genius. Lack of repeats meant that subsequent generations were denied Haynes' comedic brilliance - until now.

Featuring wickedly funny scripts from Alf Garnett creator Johnny Speight, they invariably drew on the familiar class antagonism which he would hone to perfection on Till Death Us Do Part. Haynes' robust working-class delivery was inspired - never more so than in the character of Hobo Haynes, a belligerent, heavily decorated tramp fond of recounting tales of patriotic bravery whilst being 'up to me neck in muck and bullets'.
