It's 1987 in a South Wales suburb and the Jones family are bracing themselves for the arrival of the English in the neighbourhood.

The Sandersons appear to have it all: microwave, celebrity connections, beautiful daughter and dimmer switches. The Jones family have a forgetful grandfather, an awkward son and a brand new chandelier. Jones senior wants to watch his all-important rugby match, but his wife has other ideas - as indeed does Jones junior. The Sandersons lay on a buffet as battle commences.

Executive Producer: Beryl Vertue for Hartswood Films. Writer: Mark Watson. Producer: Sue Vertue. Director: Francis Matthews.

This pilot is part of the BBC Salford Sitcom Showcase 2013.
