The Roman Empire is at its height and the citizens of Pompeii spend all the time they can enjoying themselves GÇô except for the slaves that is. In preparation for a wild orgy at his masterGÇÖs request, Lurcio accidentally picks up a scroll instead of a cucumber, unbeknownst it details the names of conspirators engaged in a plot against Emperor Nero. Will the orgy be a success, or will the papyrusGÇÖ plot propel a pall on the party? UP POMPEII was a huge success for the BBC thanks to Frankie HowerdGÇÖs hilarious double-takes and clever asides to the viewing audience at home. So successful, it lead to numerous sequels and three feature films to rival the CARRY ON series. Already pushing the boundaries of television with its saucy double-entendres, the feature-film allowed all involved to GÇ£upGÇ¥ the ante with more risqu+â-¬ material. So cover your togas and keep your swords at bay as Frankie Howerd erupts with a cast of characters including Sextus, Ammonia, Nausius, Ludicrus, Boobia, Erotica, Rumpus and Scrubba, with some help from Patrick Cargill, Michael Hordern, Bernard Bresslaw and Madeline Smith.
