Richard Briers, Felicity Kendal, Penelope Keith and Paul Eddington star as the Goods and the Leadbeaters, Surbiton neighbours whose conflicts arise from Tom and Barbara's self-sufficient lifestyle. This volume features the last two episodes ever made: the Christmas special 'Silly, But It's Fun' and the Royal Command Performance episode 'When I'm 65'. Silly, But It's Fun...(26 December 1977) The Goods are getting into the spirit of Christmas: they have newspaper paperchains up in the pigsty and Tom's managed to get hold of a Christmas tree. Well, part of one. Margo, however, is having a crisis: her Christmas tree is six-and-a-quarter inches too short. Christmas is cancelled for the Leadbeatters. But can Margo get into the silly spirit at Tom and Barbara's house instead? When I'm 65 (10 June 1978)Jerry, now an International Executive, has had a medical - but he's not as healthy as he thought he was. After too much ribbing from Tom, there's only one way to find out who's the fittest man...It's the rat-race versus self sufficiency in this last ever episode of The Good Life.
