The Guv'nor

Lenny McLean was a working class bouncer and doorman, who gained notoriety as an unlicenced bare knuckle brawler in London's East End during the 1960s and 1970s. He put those fighting skills to good use as an enforcer for the capital's criminal underworld but cinema audiences will remember him as Barry the Baptist in Guy Ritchie's Lock, Stock And Two Smoking Barrels. Tragically, McLean died a few weeks before the film's release, aged 49. Documentary filmmaker Paul Van Carter joins McLean's son Jamie as he traces his father's extraordinary rise by talking to a motley crew of colourful London characters and director Ritchie.
