John Cleese, Prunella Scales, Connie Booth and Andrew Sachs star in two BBC TV episodes, "Mrs Richards" and "Hotel Inspectors".

Things pick up for Basil, though, after he secretly wins on the horses, but then Mrs Richards discovers she's lost some money.
In "Hotel Inspectors", Sybil drops a bombshell: there are some hotel inspectors in town.
It's time for some courtesy, especially when the irritating Mr Hutchison (Bernard Cribbins) reveals he has a wide experience of hotels..."Vintage Beeb": classic albums first available as BBC LPs, now on CD for the first time ever.
