Porridge (1524 words)
Traditions and myth surround the making of porridge, some say the oatmeal was to be added in batches, some say at the beginning and some say it ought to be added half way through the cooking to produce a nuttier flavour and interesting texture.
Some say that porridge should be allowed to stand and than be re-heated, others say that it should be made the day before it is to be eaten.
In older times a 'porridge drawer' in crofters kitchens dressers was filled with fresh cooked porridge and when cold was cut into squares for the crofter to take onto the hills for sustenance.
BBC - Comedy - Porridge (579 words)
The character of jailbird Norman Stanley Fletcher was originally conceived for a one-off comedy, Prisoner and Escort, forming one of Ronnie Barker's 1973 season of TV pilots, Seven of One.
Porridge is probably the classic realisation of the sitcom method of putting characters in a situation where they're trapped with each other.
Porridge was a show never afraid to throw into the mix scenes of true drama, as Godber and sometimes even Fletcher occasionally struggled to cope with the grind of being stuck behind bars.
