Oh No It's Selwyn Froggitt - The Complete First Series

Selwyn Froggitt is the kind of man everybody comes across - all too often. The kind of man who thinks he can fix anything. The kind of man who, when you see him coming, you run for cover. Selwyn's favourite phrase is "Leave it to me." Whatever the problem, he knows what to do and how to handle it. The trouble is that despite boundless confidence in his own abilities, Selwyn really knows very little, and can handle even less. But that doesn't stop him...

Bill Maynard stars as the council labourer, hapless handyman and all-round public nuisance in this classic Yorkshire Television sitcom from the pen of award-winning writer Alan Plater (Beiderbecke). Oh No It's Selwyn Froggitt boasts a regular supporting cast featuring Bill Dean (Brookside) - who also wrote lyrics for each show's theme song - and Robert Keegan (Z-Cars), and remained a firm favourite with the viewing public throughout its two-year run, establishing Bill Maynard as a household name. This release combines the pilot episode, screened in 1974 as part of a run of single plays, and the complete first series broadcast in 1976.
