Retrospection - EP. 12 - Carry on Behind (1975)

In this episode we gulp down a stiff drink and take a hard, long look at Carry on Behind from 1975. The Carry On series spanned over 20 years and 30 films and is a cultural instution in the UK. But how does one of the later entries in the series fare under the Retrospection magnifying glass? We also finish with a song written and performed by one of our listeners. Enjoy!
