Barry Howard, Paul Shane & Jeffery Holland / Hi De Hi, you Rang M'Lord, etc
Small parts and guest appearances in television series began to materialise throughout the 1970s, and, in May 1979, comedy writer Jimmy Perry spotted Paul playing Frank Roper in a 1979 episode of Coronation Street, and offered him the part of Ted Bovis in his new holiday-camp sitcom Hi-de-Hi!. The series ran from 1980 through until 1988, when Perry and co-writer David Croft penned the pilot episode of You Rang, M'Lord?, and invited Shane to play Alf Stokes. The show ran until 1993. In 1991, Shane was given his own series, Very Big, Very Soon.
