Celebrating 40 years since its original broadcast and in series order, this is the comedy series that put organic foods, self-sufficiency and green thinking on the map. On his 40th birthday, Tom Good (Richard Briers) decides that he s had enough of the rat race, and that he and his wife Barbara (Felicity Kendal) should become self-sufficient. Overnight they begin to convert their suburban garden into a farm, complete with crops, pigs and chickens, homemade beer and more. But their choice of lifestyle doesn t exactly fit in with the neighbours, in particular Margo Leadbetter (Penelope Keith) and her henpecked husband Jerry (Paul Eddington) who find themselves hindering, but even sometimes helping against their better judgement. Unique in its vision, consistent in its comedy, this is entertainment at its finest, the kind that only comes with THE GOOD LIFE. The fourth and final series release included here also contains the 1977 Christmas Special, and the 1978 Royal Command Performance which was filmed before The Queen and The Duke of Edinburgh.
