Room At The Bottom - The Complete Series

Starring James Bolam, Keith Barron and Richard Wilson, Room At The Bottom is John Antrobus's outrageous 1980s satire on the bullying, rivalry and corruption rife within the commercial television sector; co-scripted by Antrobus and Steptoe And Son/Hancock's Half Hour's Ray Galton, the series casts Bolam as a luckless light-entertainment producer and Barron as his tyrannical boss.

Former drama producer Nesbitt Gunn's recent sacking has turned his life upside down. The offer of a new position in his company's Light Entertainment department fails to entice him, and he barricades himself in his office in protest. When calm reasoning fails to winkle him out - and entreaties from the Chaplain ends in accusations of blasphemy - all concerned decide that it's time to wheel in the big guns...
