The complete fourth series of the classic self-sufficiency sitccom. In ‘Away From It All’ Jerry (Paul Eddington) and Margo (Penelope Keith) agree to look after the livestock when Tom (Richard Briers) and Barbara (Felicity Kendal) decide to go on holiday. ‘The Green Door’ has Tom and Barbara become suspicious that Margo might be seeing another man. ‘Our Speaker Today’ sees Barbara find success as a public speaker. ‘The Weaver’s Tale’ finds Tom doing his best to persuade his neighbours to buy a spinning wheel. In ‘Suit Yourself’ Tom and Barbara try their hand at making their own clothes. ‘Sweet and Sour Charity’ has Margo take umbrage at a local production of ‘Sweet Charity’. And ‘Anniversary’ sees Margo install a new security alarm. Also includes ‘When I’m 65’, a Royal Command Performance from 1978, which finds Tom and Barbara concerned about what will become of them in their old age.
Tom and Barbara continue to struggle against adversity – and Margo – on many fronts including manure as they approach Margo’s pony club for a steady supply of fertiliser. From making their own clothes with sheep’s wool and stinging nettle dye to building chicken sheds and buying secondhand looms they find their way through an assortment of challenges.
