Episode menu

Series 16, Episode 1 - The Glory Hole

Foggy commandeers a bit of wartime nostalgia in the shape of a hole in the road, which has been abandoned by the council. Despite Compo and Clegg's lack of interest, he lays claim to an old siren which he then exchanges for a genuine cedar flagpole.
