S2-E1 Just My Bill



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.


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.
