Drama & Comedy
6 x 30 mins
A Mammoth Screen production for BBC1
High comedy at Blandings Castle where the deranged antics of troublesome relatives, friends and enemies cause disarray in the life of Lord Clarence Emsworth, in a comic masterpiece from the pen of PG Wodehouse.
All Lord Emsworth wants is peace and quiet so he can focus on the wellbeing of his prize pig. Unfortunately his family have other ideas. From saving his hapless son Freddie from his latest scrape to outwitting his overbearing sister Connie, Clarence finds himself embroiled in scams, schemes and hilarious misunderstandings. Exquisite costumes, period locations and an impeccable cast of comic actors bring the characters to life with deliciously witty dialogue, slapstick comedy and ingenious plot twists from the writer of Jeeves and Wooster. From page to screen, welcome to the charming and hilariously insane world of Wodehouse.
