The Squirrels

Rising Damp creator Eric Chappell's 22 years as a travelling auditor gave him an unequalled opportunity to observe offices and their inhabitants at close quarters, and this hit sitcom - created and written by Chappell with additional scripts by Phil Redmond and Kenneth Cope, among others - wryly explores the perils of the mid-seventies office environment.

A tyrannical boss, unchecked chauvinism and sexual harassment, pranks and in-fighting are among the workplace hazards for the staff of the accounts department of International Rentals, with Bernard Hepton, Ken Jones and Patsy Rowlands featuring in the line-up of a frustrated and occasionally rebellious team; guest stars include Philip Madoc, Aubrey Morris, Leslie Schofield and Alun Armstrong.

This set contains all 22 existing episodes (out of 28). Scripts for some of the missing episodes are included in PDF format on disc one.
