Another comic exploit for those cowboy builders from Bronton.
Workmen use explosives to demolish an old building, not realising that Geyser, Wobbly Ron and Eric are in the cellar, playing cards. Joe panics at the thought of his men entombed under tonnes of rubble. Actually, they could not be safer - Geyser finds an exit by kicking a hole in the wall of an adjacent men's toilet. Rather than go home, they decide to milk the situation for all it is worth ( they are on over time ) by pretending to be still trapped when in reality they are in 'The Dogs' Dinner' pub...
For a moment, I thought we were going to get a replay of the famous 'The End' episode of 'The Goodies' ( which also had the main characters seemingly trapped with no hope of rescue ), but then the episode veers off in a different direction. Needless to say, their scam fails. The foreman is played by Talfryn Thomas ( of 'Dad's Army' and numerous other series ) in what alas turned out to be one of his last television roles.
Funniest moment - the lavatory attendant ( Larry Noble ) doing a double-take as not one but three men troop out of the same cubicle in rapid succession.
