When Fawlty Towers was first broadcast in 1975, it proved to be a benchmark on which all British Comedy from then on was based

All six episodes from Series One

A TOUCH OF CLASS - Lord Melbury’s arrival is right up Basil’s street and there is nothing Basil won’t do for the nobility. The proprietor is only too pleased to cash in his Lordship’s cheque.

THE BUILDERS - Not for the first time, Basil’s tight-fistedness finds him out. There is building work required in the hotel lobby and, when Sybil’s back is turned, Basil immediately goes for the lowest quote for the job. But soon discovers why O’Reilly and his men come so cheap.

THE WEDDING PARTY - Basil’s prudish nature is outraged by what he perceives to be an outbreak of promiscuity at Fawlty Towers. As ever, he grabs the wrong end of the stick and then proceeds to beat himself with it.

THE HOTEL INSPECTORS - Basil is terrified by the news that hotel inspectors are in the area - as well he might be - an eccentric guest to whom he has been so appallingly offensive may be one of the officials. His ranting turns to a pathetic fawning - but has he got the right man?

GOURMET NIGHT - The cream of Torquay society turns out for a special gourmet night at Fawlty Towers. Expectations are high but so, unfortunately, is the chef. In fact he’s incapably drunk!

THE GERMANS - During a fire drill Basil is knocked out by a moose’s head. Following that, the deranged host encounters the Germans and tells them the ‘truth’ about their Fatherland...
