Rodney has been commissioned to make a film by the Local Community Arts Centre. Unfortunately, Del and Mickey Pearce take over, and the expensive equipment is soon covering weddings and all sorts - and then there's the cast and sponsor list for his production...

Further details

Rodney's art class is given a £10,000 grant to make a film spotlighting the local community and he's put in charge of the project; but first he has to avoid the scheming intentions of Mickey Pearce and Del Boy.

Whilst Rodders suffers from writer's block, Del provides him with inspiration and a tale of a killer rhino escaping from a zoo and laying waste to innocent victims on the streets of London. Rodney immediately points out the flaws in the logic behind the plot, and Del leaves him to it.

But without telling Rodney, Del has already arranged for Mickey to head down to the town hall to film different couples' weddings at £50 a time - and he has also managed to persuade half the neighbourhood to pay £10 for the opportunity of becoming a movie extra.

To make things worse, Mickey arranges for the lovely Amanda to pop round the Trotters' flat in her nurse's uniform and begin filming a 'blue movie' called Night Nurse, which is due for its premiere in the back room of The Nag's Head.
