Publisher's Summary

From the creator of Reginald Perrin, this is the complete series of David Nobbs' BBC Radio 4 sitcom based in a London art Gallery. Rod Millet has always dreamed of working at the Maltby Collection. He used to visit as a teenager, when he lusted after Whistler's Sister, and his Mother, Rod wasn't picky back then. On becoming the Museum's Deputy Curator of Painting and Sculpture, however, it quickly becomes apparent that the chavvy son of a self-made biscuit mogul isn't going to fit neatly into the musty, insular world of London antiquities. In these six episodes, Rod tries to save the gallery from closure even though by doing so he is threatening director Walter's early retirement and endeavours to find romance with the lovely Prunella. Can Millet save the day and win his boss's hand? Listen and find out... Starring Julian Rhind-Tutt (Green Wing) as Rod and Geoffrey Palmer as Walter,this well-written, gentle comedy features guest appearances from Hugh Dennis and Barry Cryer.
