PS. have you ever seen 'The Plank', a no- dialog/sound effects film by Ronnie Barker?
Says it all about Brit building sites.
Yep, seen it!
I think Eric Sykes was in it too, wasn't he?
There's another movie from the same era in which Ronnie Barker plays the jack-of-all-trades builder charged with renovating an old country cottage (I think it was called "Father Came Too," but it certainly had James Robertson Justice in it as well).
There are some great electrical moments in the film, such as when Ronnie gets to grips with an old fusebox:
"There's nothing wrong with these old fuse boxes just so long as you know what you're doing."
(Opens door, starts pulling on a cable, BANG!
, slams door shut quickly.)
"You know the touble with these old fuse boxes is that they're never any good!"
With apologies to all for going off on a tangent.....
