Format: Paperback
This is a fantastic book about one of Britain's finest sitcoms of all time. It includes the history of how the programme was created, the set designs, the secrets of how they stopped the clothes on display from being pinched by the crew, to synopses of every single episode, a chapter on the AYBS feature film, even a look at the American and Australian versions, and a full section on the AYBS spin-off Grace and Favour.
I can recommend this to all AYBS fans!

I bought this as I am a great fan of the series. It covers the show in depth and is a great source of information for a programme long gone from our TV screens.

Well worth the money.

HASH(0x994a4e28) out of 5 stars Great Book! 29 Mar. 2012
By Dale Jackson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Of all the books I've read on 'Are You Being Served?', this one is the best by far. It is a wonderful read for fans of the show. You would not believe how much information is offered within the pages, not to mention the photographs of Harold Bennett as a child. Ever wanted to know how many times Mrs Slocombe appeared with green hair in the span of the programme? The answer lies within this book. Do you want to know what other programmes Trevor Bannister did before and after 'Are You Being Served?' You'll find out and even see photographs of him as Heavy Breathing on 'The Dustbinmen'.

If you want the real story of 'Are You Being Served?' behind the counter AND behind the scenes, then purchase this book. You will not regret it!
