Leonard Rossiter starred (in his last role) as the manager of a supermarket. Also featured Pat Ashton, James Ellis and Gordon Gostelow.

The series was brought back two years later with Bruce Forsyth in the lead role, under the new title Slinger’s Day. 


Brucie took on an unenviable task – in the first place, he was following the late much-missed Rossiter, and in the second place, TV situation comedy was new to Bruce.

But he accepted the challenge, despite also hosting his own Friday night game show, Play Your Cards Right.
