Storyline

Benny starts off with "The Beach at San Tropez," then shows more examples of things that go wrong on television; a 17th century Pilgrim (Bob Todd) in the stocks for thinking wicked thoughts is relentlessly tormented by a fellow townsman (Hill); hijinks on board a cruise ship; a parody of cooking-show hosts Fanny and Johnny Cradock; and Mervyn Cruddy's film career is examined in an interview given to Andree Melly on "The Movie Shakers," which includes the famous "Home Is The Hero" about a returning Confederate veteran. Also: The Ladybirds perform "River Deep, Mountain High." Written by W.B.
