This landmark and highly-regarded series sees the characters and stories of P.G. Wodehouse's popular short stories adapted for television.

Minor aristocrat Bertram Wilberforce Wooster is one of the nicest, most well-meaning men one could wish to meat. Unfortunately for Bertie, he's also interminably dim-witted and has a habit of associating with all the wrong people.

Not all is lost, however, as Bertie's misdeeds are more than compensated for by the impeccable wit, wisdom and quick-thinking of his manservant, Jeeves.

Lovestruck girls, over-protective fathers, dotty associates and demanding aunts abound in order to prohibit Bertie from living the relaxed life he desires - and it's always down to Jeeves to save the day.
