Book Description

9 April 2009 Vintage Beeb
John Cleese, Prunella Scales, Connie Booth and Andrew Sachs star in two BBC TV episodes, "The Rat" and "The Builders". In "The Rat", the hotel faces closure due to lack of cleanliness - and two dead 'pig-ee-ons' in the watertank. Basil, Sybil and the staff have until the health inspector returns tomorrow to sort out all the problems. First, Basil has to get rid of Manuel's 'hamster'. Basil and Sybil have the weekend off in "The Builders" and leave Polly in charge. But it's O'Reilly's men that are coming and Polly goes upstairs for a siesta. Which leaves Manuel in charge..."Vintage Beeb": classic albums first available as BBC LPs, now on CD for the first time ever. This recording was previously released on LP in 1981.

4.0 out of 5 stars Two Classic Fawlty Episodes 2 Jun 2010
Format:Audio CD
This classic BBC LP, issued on CD in its original format for the first time, brings together two vintage episodes of 'Fawlty Towers', one of the greatest sitcoms ever made. With linking narration by Andrew Sachs in character as the hapless waiter Manuel, classics 'Basil The Rat' and 'The Builders' are brought together on this release. These are two of my favourite episodes, and the only slight downside to this release is that the visual element of the comedy is lost somewhat on audio (despite the narration trying to fill in during these points).

Those seeking a nostalgia fix will be pleased to see the CD packaging replicates the original sleeve, and the disc is styled after the LP itself. These 'Vintage Beeb' releases are great value and a good opportunity to enjoy some classic comedy, and 'Fawlty Towers: Second Sitting' is one of the best.
