Giles tries his hand on board an oilrig in the Cromarty Firth.
Giles tries his hand on board an oilrig in the Cromarty Firth, where he mishears the word "roustabout" with unfortunate consequences and decides to become a roundabout. Along the way he, quite literally, throws a spanner in the works. He also learns what to do if you're trapped in a decompression chamber with a farting Geordie.
This episode is sometimes refered to as "An Oil Rig Roundabout" or "Scotland".
