Riotous sitcom starring Roy Kinnear as Joe Jones, whose small building firm (Joe Jones Ltd.) don't seem to ever do a thing right. Aided - or more aptly, hindered - by David Kelly as 'Wobbly' Ron and Chariots Of Fire Oscar-winning writer Colin Welland as Geyser, his attempts to do good work are thwarted by his own ignorance, but mostly by his tight wallet!
