It's Bouquet - not Bucket by Harold Snoad( Book )

2 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 78 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Keeping Up Appearances is one of the best-loved British sitcoms and has now been seen in more than sixty countries around the globe, with a particularly huge following in the USA. The show, originally broadcast on the BBC from 1990 to 1995, starred Patricia Routledge as the unforgettable Hyacinth Bucket pronounced 'Bouquet!' the incorrigible snob whose desperate attempts at social climbing always end in disaster and humiliation. Throughout the sitcom's five series (plus four Christmas specials), the producer and director was Harold Snoad, whose directing credits already included such classics as Dad's Army and The Dick Emery Show. In this hugely entertaining memoir of the series, Snoad takes us behind the scenes and into the hurly-burly world of TV production - from location shooting in the city streets of Britain's Midlands and the glamorous lounges of the QE2, to the daily grind of schedules and rewrites and the shenanigans and foibles of the actors ... Witty and revealing, It's Bouquet - Not Bucket! offers both an exclusive insight into a great British institution - the situation comedy - and a comprehensive guide to one of its greatest examples, Keeping Up Appearances, with full plot synopses, cast lists and locations."--Publisher description
Dad's army by Jimmy Perry( Recording )

3 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 59 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Dad's Army fan Phill Jupitus selects four of his favourite episodes from the evergreen radio series, starring Arthur Lowe, John Le Mesurier and Clive Dunn. As with other volumes in the Very best episodes range, Jupitus has also written an introductory sleeve note explaining just what makes these four episodes great. As he says, "There are episodes here you will be familiar with and some you may never have heard, but what I can promise is that they are all achingly funny." "The man and the hour" is the first ever episode of the series, in which Mainwaring barks out, "Come on Adolf, we're ready for you!"; "My British buddy" finds Mollie Sugden guest starring as a Walmington inhabitant besotted with the new GIs in town; "Time on my hands" finds a German airman snagged by his parachute on the town hall clock; and in "A soldier's farewell mainwaring dreams" he is Napoleon at Waterloo, with Wilson an elegant Duke of Wellington
