In this classic TV sitcom, Gordon Brittas (Chris Barrie) is the manager of Whitbury New Town Leisure Centre. He means well, wants to do well and desperately wants to be a good manager. Unfortunately his best talent is to continually create recipes for total disaster But Deep down Brittas cares for his staff, but all he ever seems to do is to make their lives more difficult. Trying to rise above this, and to keep the Centre running smoothly, are his assistant Laura (Julia St. John) and of course Colin, complete with boil! Behind every good man, so the saying goes, is a good woman, and behind every maniac, is a good woman losing her sanity! Helen Brittas (Pippa Haywood) is no different as she struggles to cope with her husband's misplaced enthusiasm.
This set features in entirety the 7 series that comprise The Brittas Empire.

Each disc has a whole season of episodes on it and good extras that will keep you entertained for quite sometime. If you like good funny sitcoms, you will not regret picking up this great series.
Gordon tries to make a good manager but his attention to detail causes disastrous results as he insist on going by the rules .
He cares about his staff a great deal and tries to help them in the difficulties they face but he just upsets them even more he cannot see the upset he causes with his straight talking.
The first episode will give you a good indication of the way things are .
A receptionist that always seams to be upset because her husband has left her homeless with a baby that she hides in a draw under the counter ( later in the series she has twins the farther works in the centre).
A technical assistant that has more skin dieses than you care to imagine.
Two gay lifeguards.
A secretary that dose the opposite of what Gordon asks for.
An assistant manager that tries to keep the centre running smoothly despite Gordon's interfering antics .
And a wife that is loosing her sanity and is a walking drug store of anti depressants because of Gordon .
I find this funny because I work in a leisure centre and the red tape in the series is very close to the way things are in leisure centres, the writers have done there homework for this series .Read more ›
Gordon runs the leisure centre his way and by his rules. His jobs-worth attitude, mannerisms and in fact just about everything he says and does irritates his customers to the point that the centre stands empty most of the time.
On one occasion Gordon's wife attended the doctor for a renewal of her tranquiliser tablets, but the doctor couldn't comprehend why she needed to many and insisted upon meeting her husband. I remember him handing two prescriptions to her saying, "This is your prescription Mrs Brittas and this one is for the really bad days".
The funny thing is that he is oblivious to the problems that he causes and just moves from one disaster to the next.
Gordon will make you cringe, laugh and even cry with some of his antics and I would recommend this DVD set to anyone who was a fan when the series was first shown. Good quality family entertainment that doesn't resort to swearing or crudeness to get laughs.
