So stupid its great!
This is such a wonderfully stupid program it really is a gem. The basic idea is that this factory somewhere in England has a machine called Bertha (eyes and everything), which will make anything you want it to, according to what Mr. Sprot (the 'mad scientist' figure) designes and the factory comission. This ranges from mousetraps to differant coloured building blocks. during te course of the episode something invariably goes wrong, and its up to the characters which include Roy (the foreman and Berthas best friend), Panjit (the Pakistani immigrant forklift truck driver), and all the others to sort out. This usually involves Bertha making something else to combat whatever went wrong before. There is so much adult humour in it thought, that it really is a joy to watch for all ages. Its probably difficult to get hold of now, but if you ever get the chance its well worth a go. Enjoy!
