Filmed in the style of a fly-on-the-wall documentary, The Office records the working day of manager David Brent and his staff.

Brent is the manager from hell; he is tactless, talentless, egotistical, prejudiced, cowardly and conniving - yet somehow thinks everyone loves him.

His long-suffering employees include the weasley Gareth, unlucky-in-love Tim, and the object of Tim's affections, receptionist Dawn.
