Eight and a half million viewers presently watch 'Are you being served' on BBC 1 on Saturday nights. 1998 marks the silver jubileeof 1st transmission. Sky Gold is continually re-running episodes and in the US it is 1 of the most popular cable TV programmes on the West coast. Are you being Served is not only a TV classic it is also a cult. To mark 25th anniversary we plan to publish an 'official' celebration book contributed to and endorsed by the writers David Croft and Jeremy Lloyd who will contribute original scripts and behind the scenes photographs as well as personal anecdotes. The book will review the history of programme inclyding how the original idea was developed. There will be character and main actor profiles, and first hand interviews with John Inman, Molly Sugden, Trevor Bannister, Arthur Brough, Frank Thornton, and Wendy Richard. This will be followed by an episode by episode guide including a cast list and original transmission date, features on the secretaries of Young Mr Grace who became famous and quotes and memories from special guests. Finally there will be a section on the feature film.
