Synopsis

Lord Loam is proud of his tendency to treat his staff as equals - to a point - while his manservant Crichton believes people should know their place. However, when the entire household is shipwrecked on a desert island, it is the resourceful butler who rises to the top of the pecking order - to the horror of his supposedly liberal master. Comedy based on JM Barrie's play, starring Kenneth More, Cecil Parker, Diane Cilento and Peter Graves.
