Bob Grove, a builder has problems with the council, over building supplies that he needs to complete a job on a local housing estate.

This was the first soap to appear on the BBC.One can see in this film all the conventions,albeit rather more genteel,that would be seen in modern day soaps.Though I do not think that the visit by a princess would involve so much genuflecting.The father is always the sensible one.The elder son is always getting into dodgy deals and hoping his father will get him out of trouble.There is the teenage daughter,this time without much of a romantic interest,and the young son,always managing to get into scrapes,this time running up scaffolding to get a better view.We are never told which princess is attending.If it was Princess Margaret she would have wanted something rather stronger than tea!
