Synopsis by Clarke Fountain
In this comedy, George Grant (Peter Bowles) is a successful television personality. He has shaken hands with the Queen, and has even met Elizabeth Taylor - and he has the photos which prove it prominently displayed in his office. One day, after obnoxiously humiliating yet another spineless guest on his tabloid-type news show, he heads for home. From here on, every single circumstance in his life seems tailor-made to knock him down off his oh-so-high horse, back to where the rest of us live. His wife has put up with his arrogance for years - why she picks today to leave him is a mystery. Then, his car is stolen, his house keys go missing, and a million-and-one sufferings become his lot. One of the funniest is an encounter with his "loving and caring" bank manager (Roshan Seth).
