Rab C Nesbitt, Series 10 Episode 4 of 6

When the drop-in centre where Rab holds his self-help group meetings becomes a victim of council cuts, Rab decides to fight back.

Granted time on local radio, his impassioned appeal fails to raise any support - mainly because 90 per cent of it has to be bleeped out. An encounter with council leader Simon Bird (Hamish Clark from Monarch of the Glen) proves pointless so Rab feels it's time for a grand public gesture. He decides to burn himself at the stake. One white dress and a pudding bowl haircut later, and he's Govan's answer to Joan of Arc - 'Rab of Arc, Maid of Govan.'

Meanwhile, Mary is considering having an affair with one of her cleaning clients, but while she is about to get her fingers burnt, Rab is about to get his everything burnt. Empathising with the dignity and seriousness of Rab's protest, Jamesie organizes 'Rab of Arc' mugs and tee shirts, and even some cheerleaders to dance and whoop as Rab goes up in flames.
