There are two versions of this, both starring Eric Sykes. The 1967 version had Tommy cooper and the 1979, Arthur Lowe.

I didn’t know that, Vulcan.
there is yet another version, from 1964 - it was from the BBC TV series "Sykes and a ........", series 7.
Dated, and of it’s time.

The plank used in this short film went on to have a varied and not very successful life afterwards and indeed anonymously posts on this very site using a name that incorporates the same two last letters in the new "name". The experience suffered in the making of this film obviously went some way towards moulding the fractious, down trodden but yearning for elevation, splinter filled persona that manifest itself quite regularly here.
