Series 1

1. Episode One

First broadcast: Friday 25th April 1980

Life on a Mediterranean island, far from strike-torn Britain, is a paradise. Or is it? The Hallidays aren't sure, and neither, it seems, is anybody else.


2. Episode Two

First broadcast: Friday 2nd May 1980

It's a funny day, is Thursday. It's a caterer's nightmare. It turns out to be a bit of a nightmare for Helen as well, not to mention Gloria and Robert.


3. Episode Three

First broadcast: Friday 9th May 1980

Finding a good doctor isn't always easy on a Mediterranean island - especially if you insist that only an Englishman can be trusted to deal with English insides.


4. Episode Four

First broadcast: Friday 16th May 1980

Even on a Mediterranean island there are worries. But it isn't heatstroke or sharks or squid poisoning or the cost of aubergines that worries Peter. It's whether Tottenham Hotspur beat Liverpool - and how he can find out.


5. Episode Five

First broadcast: Friday 23rd May 1980

There's plenty of time for trivial gossip in the Mediterranean, but even the most trivial gossip can sometimes lead to serious misunderstandings.


6. Episode Six

First broadcast: Friday 30th May 1980

It seemed like a good idea when Peter and Helen decided to make a tape of their life on the island to send to their friends in Winch-more Hill. But it could be awkward for them if the Halliday Tapes fell into the wrong hands.
