If you catch a leaf
So they say
As it falls from the tree
Glad will you be
For a year and a day.

by Ted Smith
With Brian Coburn as Big Bill Bishop, Patrick Westwood as Bonkey Stone, John Moore as James Smithers, Douglas Blackwell as first Prison Officer, Anthony Hall as second Prison Officer

Two old lags who share the same cell have got prison life down to a fine art. They are upset when an outsider, a public school type and a first timer, is made to live with them, and bowled over when he reveals a sinister side to his nature, which makes him their natural leader, entitled to the position of prestige - the top bunk.
