BBC2’s current obsession with the 1970s has its benefits, like a repeat of this sweet 1975 episode of The Good Life. There’s precisely £3.28 left in Tom and Barbara’s bank account, but the rates are due so the pair are forced to think laterally and flog their huge surplus of home-grown fruit and veg to a restaurateur – a shiny man in a horrible frilly shirt. And talking of sartorial monstrosities, check out Margo’s terrible brown chiffon hostess gown.

About this programme

1/7. Tom tries to market his garden produce, but finds it more difficult than he imagined - especially with the added pressure of paying the household rates. Richard Briers and Felicity Kendal star.
