The Good Life - Complete Series Four

Tom and Barbara continue to struggle against adversity - and Margo - on many fronts including manure, as they approach Margo's pony club for a steady supply of fertiliser. From making their own clothes with sheep's wool and stinging nettle dye to building chicken sheds and buying secondhand looms, they find their way through an assortment of challenges. And life for Margo and Jerry is not without its ups and downs as Jerry fights to succeed his boss at the office and Margo continues to spend, spend, spend. This fourth and final series release also contains the 1977 Christmas Special, and the 1978 Royal special, which was filmed before The Queen and The Duke of Edinburgh.
