In this fictional documentary series - a mockumentary, if you will - an interviewer seeks out ordinary British citizens as they go about their daily jobs. The interviewer's subjects are often hilariously bumbling in their work, as is the interviewer himself. The series aired on the BBC from 1995 to 1997.

Roy talks to Nick Levick (Stuart Wright), who has run the office for the last three years, and says: "Many people think it's a really easy job, money for old rope. In actual fact it's bloody hard work, the trick is to make it look easy - it's a bit like bullfighting."
