This dire but mercifully short-lived sitcom from Thames Television was set in Manchester and revolved around Les Brooks (Sam Kelly), a middle-aged man facing redundancy.

Not wanting to join the dole queue, Les came up with a series of money-making schemes, every one of which ended up a failure.

His wife Maureen (Marcia Warren) had to take a job as a barmaid to make enough money to keep the family going while Les was busy trying to better himself.
