Publisher's Summary

Four original BBC television episodes of the much-loved classic sitcom starring Richard Briers, Felicity Kendal, Paul Eddington, and Penelope Keith. Tom, Barbara, Jerry, and Margo return in the last four episodes of the final series. In 'The Weaver's Tale' (1 May 1977) Barbara isn't happy when Tom spends all their money on a second-hand loom, and Jerry bravely decides to rein in Margo's spending - just after she's been shopping.
In 'Suit Yourself' (8 May 1977) Tom and Barbara are making a suit for Tom using sheep's wool and dye from stinging nettles, while Margo and Jerry have a dinner where 'Sir' announces his retirement. But who will take over the company?
In 'Sweet and Sour Charity' (15 May 1977) Margo is outraged that the Music Society has chosen Sweet Charity for its next production. Meanwhile, Tom and Barbara plan to siphon off the oil from their neighbour's tank....
Finally, 'Anniversary' (22 May 1977) - here's to the good life! In the last programme, it's Tom's birthday and the second anniversary since he and Barbara went self-sufficient. However, they have the only oil slick in Surbiton and receive a major shock after hearing Jerry's good news.

These audio books are the original tv episodes, they have little added bits of commentary by Penelope Keith when the 'action' needs to be described. It actually works quite well; if you have seen the tv series then you'll have no problem visualizing what's going on. It was a little stroll down memory lane for me. Harmless, lightweight comedy which makes for a great bedtime listen.
