Four original BBC television episodes of the much-loved classic sitcom starring Richard Briers, Felicity Kendal, Paul Eddington and Penelope Keith. Surbiton's most famous residents bring their endearingly funny mix of self-reliance and snobbery to audio, in another collection of hilarious episodes...

The Happy Event is the fourth double CD collection which sees the classic '70s BBC TV series being transferred to audio CDs. Each episode also has additional commentary by Penelope Keith that helps to flesh out some of the action that is going on in the episodes. Keith is used sparingly, and thankfully only explains what is going on when it is absolutely necessary.

Episodes in this collection include:

Home Sweet Home (originally broadcast on 16 January 1976): When the Goods hear about a nearby farm that would be perfect for them, they decide to move. But neither of them really wants to leave...

Going to Pot (originally broadcast on 23 January 1976): The Goods enrol in evening classes, and Tom discovers an unexpected talent for pottery. When his work starts to sell, will their self-sufficient lifestyle be threatened?

The Early Birds (originally broadcast on 10 September 1976): After an argument with Margo and Jerry about working late in the garden, the Goods decide on an 'early to bed, early to rise' approach. But it's not as easy as it sounds...

The Happy Event (originally broadcast on 17 September 1976): Pinky has a litter of piglets, but the runt seems too weak to live. Can the Goods and the Leadbetters save it?

All four episodes in this collection are as funny now as they were back in the mid-'70s. Grab yourself a slice of classic BBC comedy.
