Are You Being Served Again?
30 minutes per episode
Trevor Bannister was only original main cast member that did not rejoined the cast of Grace and Favour, which was his own decision. As he described it his character in Are You Being Served? was just a cheeky young man who often uses double entendre, which worked fine when he was in his 30s, but when he was in his 60s he felt Mr Lucas would simply be a dirty old man...
The idea for the series was partly inspired by the case of British publishing tycoon Robert Maxwell, who, as it turned out, used to borrow heavily from his own employees’ pensions fund.
