When Mr. Pedelty (Joseph Tomelty) leaves his firm, he is given a television set as a retirement present. At first he enjoys all the attention from his neighbors but soon the attraction wears off and he sells it on to a young married couple (Jack Watling and Peggy Cummins) living in the flat above him. They soon encounter the same problems, and again the set is passed on to different people all with the same results. Stanley Holloway stars as Mr. Lucifer. Also with Barbara Murray and Gordon Jackson.
