Sun Trap, The (BBC-1 1980, Joan Benham, Donald Churchill)



The Sun Trap is probably David Nobbs least well known sitcom, airing for six episodes on Saturdays nights in late spring 1980. The premise saw a group of ex-pats living on a Mediterranean island and doing their best to turn it into a little England. The cast was excellent too.
