To the Manor Born was a British sitcom that aired between 1979 - 1981 and in 2007.
This is the 2nd disc of the 1st Series.
At Mrs. Patterson's shop, Audrey talks to the Brigadier about the Summer Hunt Ball, which is always held at the Manor. Audrey refuses to organise it as she normally does, although she has sent out the invitations. She wants Richard to come to her on "bended knee", however, he instead asks Marjory. A furious Audrey takes over, which was Richard's intention, but Marjory continues to organise it as well. On the day, Audrey and Marjory argue about a footbridge on the estate, which Audrey told Ned not to fix, contrary to Marjory's orders. When Audrey finds out that Marjory is going to the Ball as Richard's partner, she refuses to go and plays Scrabble with Brabinger instead. Richard visits her later on to apologise, but when he leaves Audrey directs him to the damaged footbridge.
When Mrs. Poo complains of being bored, Richard agrees to holding a party. At the party, rumours spread that Richard has suspicious business dealings and everyone tells Audrey that she should take a holiday Shortly after, Audrey pretends to go on holiday to Málaga, with only Brabinger knowing she is really hiding at the Lodge. While she is 'on holiday', rumours spread when Marjory and Richard are seen going behind her house each evening, but they are actually watching badgers. When she 'returns' from holiday, Audrey gives a party and on the terrace Richard tells her he saw her in the Lodge while she was meant to be in Málaga. He agrees to keep quiet if she stops spreading the rumours about his suspicious business dealings.
Audrey is having money problems, and on her first ever visit to a supermarket, a "Cavendish Foods" store, she gives Polly, the cashier, a cheque she knows will bounce. In an attempt to appear more English, Richard is starring in an advert for "Fauntleroy's Old English Tonic" being filmed at the Manor. Audrey is curious to know what is going on and sends Brabinger over to find out; he is then asked to play the butler in the advert. Later, the director Bob Roberts (Blain Fairman) goes to the Lodge to ask to use Audrey's Rolls Royce. She then tells him that the Manor is not Richard's ancestral home, but hers, which makes him worried about what the sponsors will say. A few days later, Audrey arrives at the Manor to take Richard to the Lord Lieutenant's charity gala, and then advert appears on the television, with Audrey not Richard.
