The plot of the story is how Del Boy 'educates' Rodney and Grandad in all things oil. Telling them of its many by products, and how it affects us in everything we do. From the Corn Flakes we eat in the morning (no they don't actually contain oil) to the clothes we wear and the fertiliser we use on the allotment. They then watch a programme 'on BBC 2' about Oil Exploration. After watching the documentary Rodney asks the most poignant question we are all thinking, which is 'What I don't understand Del is why you're so suddenly interested in oil?' Del's obvious response is 'co's we are gonna earn out of it'. He then tells Rodney and Grandad that he has bought an oil rig for £400, and how it is in a lock up in Catford. Rodney then explains how this cannot be possible, and Del finally realises he has been conned.
Part of a BBC Breakfast Time Christmas Special, this rare clip shows Del explaining how to sell some White Mice to a 'Wally In A Hat'.

Unfortunately they take a wrong turn and end up walking into the middle of the Royal Variety performance. They mistake the Duchess of York (Fergie) for Chunky...bear in mind she wasn't too slim in those days.

Del, Rodney and Albert produced this special to boost the morale of the troops in the Gulf. For a while this one was lost, but The appreciation Society uncovered it and brought it back for the public. Great lines include "This is Derek Trotter reporting from a secret location somewhere in southern England.", then Rodney says "(To Del) It's High Wycombe." This is unlikely to be released for public viewing, but the script is availble.
Brief: Dels latest line is selling telescopic Xmas trees. Maybe a bit of advertising down the local church wouldn't do any harm. Will Del understand the ethics involved? -This is the rarest and most sort after episode ever made.

Despite knocking the price down to a mere six quid, Del Boy can't shift his telescopic Christmas trees (lights, bangles, beads and baubles inclusive). He only has 149 more to sell to make a tidy profit.
Stuck for a solution the Trotters decamp to Sid's burger van. Del's conscience seems to get the better of him, and he tells Rodney and Grandad what a shame it is that the market traders can't afford to donate a tree to the local church this year. Especially the little orphans.
Left to guard the trees, Rodney steals away to the church.
The Vicar quickly debunks Del's story, and Rodders realises the tale was a scam to get an endorsement from The Church of England.
Filmed in 1985 and reportedly shown in New Zealand and Australia it features Boycie showing Del the latest available model.
Abbey National Advert
Also filmed and broadcast in 1985 the scene is set in an upper class restaurant and has a rather funny ending!
