Further details

With a microphone in one hand and a tape recorder in the other, Boycie recalls the big issues in his life in what he intends to be a classic - a life manual and an important book for future generations.

Boycie's story begins as he recalls his Peckham days, with flashback memories to his South London life with Del Boy, Rodney and the rest of the gang. He fondly remembers his friendships, their adventures, the subsequent move to Shropshire and his new life on the farm.

Delving into his memories of the old days proves surprisingly enlightening for him and hilarious for the eavesdropping Marlene.


This is a clip show episode with archive footage from both The Green Green Grass and Only Fools And Horses.
