Series 4, Episode 4 - Animal Instincts
Tyler wants to borrow money to buy new equipment for his band, Puddle of Agony. But Boycie, who was brought up in the school of hard knocks, refuses to cough up. Meanwhile the local vicinity is gripped by fear of Animal Freedom protestors.
Oakam village is under attack from animal rights activists. Llewellyn is one of their first targets when he is hit with a paint bomb, the village butcher is fly-postered with leaflets and even the local pub is under threat. All the local farming community is living in fear, so Boycie organises his staff into patrol groups to search Winderdown farm and protect it from attack.
Meanwhile, Tyler wants to borrow some money to buy new equipment for his band, Puddle Of Agony, but Boycie, brought up in the school of hard knocks, refuses to help. Instead, he challenges his son to stand on his own two feet and prove he is a businessman by raising the money himself. If Tyler can convert £10 from Boycie into £100 by the end of the week, then Boycie promises to cough up the full amount of £5,000.
This is no small task, however, when the local vicinity is being gripped by fear of animal freedom protestors. But Tyler sees an opportunity that will satisfy the animal activists, the band, the local inhabitants and himself - in fact, everyone but his dad.
