Room at the Bottom

1 9 6 6 – 1 9 6 7 (UK)
7 x 30 minute episodes

This short-lived BBC comedy series began as a single episode of Comedy Playhouse on 14 June 1966.

It was the tale of a roguish group of maintenance men who had organised themselves very comfortably within the offices of Titan Products Ltd – a huge manufacturing business.

Comfortable, that is, until a new Internal Security Officer joined the firm on the lookout for petty pilfering – the maintenance men’s principal occupation.

Kenneth Connor starred as the Bilko-esque ringleader, Gus Fogg, while Deryk Guyler gave a nice dreamy rendering of Mr Powell, the excessively optimistic Director of Internal Personnel.

Guests included Richard O’Sullivan, Henry McGee, Eric Dodson and Patrick Newell.
