James MacTaggart directs this 1970s British comedy starring Warren Mitchell, Kenneth Cranham, Vanessa Howard, Richard Briers and Bill Fraser. Salesman Fred Midway (Mitchell) started off with very little but is determined to climb the social ladder by any means necessary. If this involves accusing a promotion rival of having an affair with his boss's wife then Fred is happy to do so. Aware that a man can only rise so far if his family match his ambitions, the rest of the Midways - Hilda (Pat Heywood), Eileen (Elaine Taylor) and Tom (Cranham) - are implored by Fred to put on a show of sophistication. However, he may well come to regret educating his son Tom in the art of falsehood. For when Fred strikes upon his most devious scheme yet, Tom wants a piece of the action - and is prepared to blackmail his own father to get it...
