Reg Dudgeon (George Cole) is an "ordinary working man" living in Londongrad, capital of Communist Britain.
The Russians have taken over the country and Reg, for one, thinks it's wonderful.
He gradually begins to have doubts, however, because of the contrast between the poor standard of living of ordinary people and the champagne lifestyle of senior Communist Party members.
This was a short lived series, but amusing nonetheless.
I have 2 episodes on offer – this being the first of the series. The quality is not topnotch, but it was the best signal I got all those years ago.
