Leading from the heights

  • Adrian Furnham


In that memorable and very British television sketch of the early 1960s, Cleese, Barker, and Corbett explained and portrayed the British class system. Tall, ectomorphic, Cambridge graduate John Cleese looks down his nose at respectable, bespectacled, endomorphic Ronnie Barker. Both look down on the chirpy, vertically challenged, but perfectly formed Ronnie Corbett who “knows his place”.
