Product Description

Publisher: Hodder & Stoughton

Author: Graham McCann

Fawlty Towers was only on our screens for 12 half-hour episodes, but it has stayed in our lives ever since. The Major; `Don`t mention the war!`; `He`s from Barcelona`; Basil the Rat everyone has a favourite line, moment or character.

In this, the first biography of the show, Graham McCann holds up to the light each of the unpredictable elements - the demented brilliance of John Cleese, his creative partnership with Connie Booth - that added up to an immortal sitcom, beloved all over the world, even in Barcelona. (pb)
