    Comic genius Leonard Rossiter (The Fall And Rise Of Reginald Perrin) heads the cast in this enduringly popular comedy of lodgers versus their miserly landlord. Also starring Frances De La Tour (Tom Jones), Richard Beckinsale (Porridge) and Don Warrington (Lovejoy), this timeless comic masterpiece has become one of the most revered and priceless series in British comedy history.

    Rigsby, self styled aristocrat of bed-sitter land, isn`t really prejudiced about anyone or anything in particular. He is more or less prejudiced about everyone and everything in general.

    There is however one exception. When it comes to Ruth he admits to having a tender spot and sees himself as her knight in shining armour. Ruth has an interest in Rigsby too - but it`s far from an amoral one. Rigsby`s other lodgers are the long-haired and long-suffering student Hallam and the new member of the household, African Prince Philip.

    Includes all six episodes from the first series: Rooksby; Black Magic; Charisma; Night Out; All Our Yesterdays; The Prowler.
