A huge success in the early 1960s for the BBC, a decade later, the cast and writers reunited for two further series - only this time made by LWT. As well as Peter Jones and Miriam Karlin reprising their roles as antagonists Harold Fenner, the proprietor of Fenner Fashions, and Paddy, the militant shop steward, new additions to the cast included Christopher Beeny as Tony and Anna Karen as Olive. This collection contains all fifteen episodes that comprised the first LWT series, including the festive special, shown on Christmas Eve 1977. Episodes comprise: 'Stay In Strike', 'The Sample', 'Fixing The Rate', 'The Lunch Problem', 'The Export Order', 'The Italian Line', 'Olive's Baby', 'The Wedding Dress', 'The Sideline', 'The Guvnor's Wife', 'The New Girl', 'The Bet', 'The Accident', 'The New Brother' and 'Christmas Rush'.
