    Rod Millet has always dreamed of working at the Maltby Collection. He used to visit as a teenager, when he lusted after Whistler's Sister, and his Mother, Rod wasn't picky back then. On becoming the Museum's Deputy Curator of Painting and Sculpture, however, it quickly becomes apparent that the chavvy son of a self-made biscuit mogul isn't going to fit neatly into the musty, insular world of London antiquities.

    Titter lots at Frankie Howerd's ditties, sketches, limericks and stand up, recorded in front of a specially-invited audience. The star of TV's 'Up Pompeii' and mainstay of innumerable 'Carry-On' films, Frankie Howerd causes a mayhem of mirth, where even his co-stars can't help laughing. As well as songs, stories, naughtiness and his usual audience banter, 'Please Yourselves' sees Frankie visiting his (female) doctor about an accident where he fell artichoke over chip.

    It is a quiet Saturday morning in the Hinchcliffe home. Tony and Sal, tired after a week of work, have time on their hands. But not for each other. Middle-aged and middle class, they haven't had kids and they still feel that emotional vacuum. The doorbell rings. It is an American couple - Monty and Janey - a rather loud duo they stayed with in Delaware years ago. They said, 'If ever you happened to be passing....' Well, the Americans are passing and they have no hotel booked. To Tony's horror Sal invites them to stay.
