Fawlty Towers
Regarded by many as the pinnacle of British humour, John Cleese' much-loved sitcom about the worst hotelier in South East England is as eye-wateringly funny now as it was thirty years ago. Basil Fawlty himself is a genius comic creation, harnessing Cleese's gift for physical comedy and ably backed up by Prunella Scales' shrewish Sybil and Andrew Sach's bumbling Spanish waiter, Manuel. It's quite shockingly un-PC to the modern viewer, but the occasional risqué remark should be seen as a nostalgic reminder of a time before every broadcast was weighed against whom it might offend and is just one of Fawlty Towers' many charms.

Best Episode
The Germans (Series 1, Episode 6), Basil at his xenophobic best - don't mention the war!

Did You Know?
Basil Fawlty was based on one Mr Sinclair, a real Torquay hotelier with whom the Monty python gang once stayed. During their stay he allegedly attacked Terry Gilliam and threw Eric Idle's briefcase over a wall.
