HANDYMAN FOR ALL SEASONS

Originally broadcast: 1 December 1995
Directed by: Geoff Posner
Written by: Henry Normal, Steve Coogan
Ernest Moss is horrified at plans to turn the village into a new town, an offer of a job with the development company is firmly rejected, and a dirty tricks campaign leads to doubts about his skills as a handyman.

"I have in my hand a spade. We don't call it a digging implement. We don't call it a hand-held earth displacer. We don't even call it a shovel, that's a different kettle of fish altogether. There's a curvature to the blade, and it's primarily designed for shifting, as opposed to digging. Or shovelling."
