The word has it that this programme was commissioned when another production fell through, with only three months notice.
I could have sworn it made it to a second series, but who am I to argue.
The gist of the plot was two brothers inherited a farm, one, the 'cleverer' of the pair was overcome with dismay, at the utter futility of the situation.
He fantasised about having an affair with the 'woman next door' - a pretty if not especially bright 'townie' who's moved from the city with her husband and children (Oberon & Titania) The second brother (by far the more stupid) is content with his lot.
To that extent, it's a thinly veiled remake of the classic 1960's sitcom 'Steptoe and Son'.
In my estimation this should have been ranked alongside 'Father Ted' but the mandarins at the BBC thought otherwise, nd it was quietly 'put out to grass'
