    This book is a must for anyone who likes AYBS.It has everything one can ask for: detailed episode guides ; leading cast bios and information about actors who played customers, nice color and B&W photos, background stories , fun facts and useless facts :-) (Mrs. Slocombe's hair color statistics table, with green at first place - in 10 episodes ! ) and a glimpse at the chilly to mocking press reviews it used to get at the time ("Candidates for the most inept comedy series of the year so far should definitely include ATV's It's Tarbuch on Tuesdays... Marginally worse is BBC1's AYBS on Wednesdays..." Morning Star 1973)It also covers Grace & Favour and the movie.
