OFFICE POLITICKING over-easy. Penned by ERIC CHAPPELL off the back of his days spent as, hey, a travelling auditor with the East Midlands Electricity Board, which became the fictional accounts department of the International Rentals television hire company. BERNARD HEPTON was the evil boss, KEN JONES, PATSY ROWLANDS, ALAN DAVID, ELLIS JONES and KARIN MACCARTHY his five underlings. Much treasury tag turmoil ensued. Later episodes penned by KENNETH COPE and – yikes – PHIL REDMOND.
