This sarcastically titled British anthology series consisted of six hour-long comedies about the trials and tribulations of "normal" life. The first playlet, "Keeping Score," starred Martyn Hesford, Tessa Peake-Jones, and Charles Gray in the story of an aristocratic young lady who entered into a romance with a neurotic punker. "The Way, the Truth, and the Video," with Peter Firsh, Ian Bannen, and Annette Crosbie, concerned an evangelist who tried to foment a Puritan revival. "Checkpoint Cheswick," with Hywel Bennett, Gil Brailey, and Simon Nash, was all about a paranoid family who converted their home into a bunker as protection against a supposed anarchistic rebellion. In "Pastoral Care," Tony Robinson played a vicar who was scrutinized by the Government after an innocent visit to a missile base. "Incident on the Line" starred Warren Mitchell and Alexandra Pigg in the saga of a would-be suicide who was rescued by a really strange young lady. And finally, "Everyone a Winner" featured Jonathan Pryce as a clergyman whose life was set on its ear by his financially savvy youngsters. Tickets for the Titanic was telecast by Britain's Channel 4 from March 4, 1987 to March 9, 1988.
