Squire Fenton Babblewick inherits an estate, but his manservant is dismayed. Stars Nicholas Le Prevost. From December 1995.

When idealistic Fenton Babblewick inherits his uncle's Yorkshire estate, it’s the perfect opportunity to realise his utopian dreams.

But for his manservant, August Snipe, the move to Babblewick Hall is a nightmare - the house is cold, full of farm animals and worst of all "it’s in the north" - a lifetime away from the comforts of London.

Starring Nicholas Le Prevost as Fenton Babblewick and Forbes Masson as Augustus Snipe.
