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.
