Four classic BBC TV episodes featuring a newly-added interview with John Cleese.
Basil has to contend with Mrs. Richards, a deaf battle-axe who leaves her hearing aid 'off' to conserve batteries. But even his whispers are picked up by Sybil, especially when it comes to a certain horse running in a certain race.
The Hotel Inspectors
News that hotel inspectors are in the area sends Basil into a frenzy of excessive rudeness and then, believing one of the guests is an inspector, excessive fawning.
Basil the Rat
Manuel has a new pet, but Basil thinks the 'Siberian Hamster' is nothing more than a rat, just what he doesn't need with a public health inspector on the loose.
Basil soon finds out why O'Reilly and his men come cheap when he scraps Sybil's builder in favour of his own. Will he be able to repair the damage before Sybil returns?

Anything with a visual gag.
I love Fawlty Towers, but I'll stick to the TV version in future.
