BASIC PROGRAMME OUTLINE
Fawlty Towers,owned and managed by Basil Fawlty,is located in the English holiday area of Torquay,Devon.
His life is made hell by his constantly nagging wife,Sybil.His patience is pushed to the limit by the dim witted
Spanish waiter,Manuel,who always gets things wrong."You continental cretin"was just one of the names given to him by Basil.
Polly was the waitress who seemed to be always there to help Basil out of a sticky situation,such as when Basil wins some money on a horse race,and then tries to hide the money from his wife(who thinks he has stopped betting).
John Cleese based his character on a real hotel manager,when he was once in Torquay,and this gave him the idea for a TV show.
Fawlty Towers is still one of the most famous and talked about British comedy shows of all time,and the ratings
are still very high on repeat showings.
