Written by Philip King and Falkland L. Cary, based on an idea by Ivan Butler
Directed by Mike Rand
15 – 20 September 1969

In the Orders Office of Chunkbix Ltd, it is decidedly Mr. Price Hargraves who gives the orders and little Mr. Bloome who obeys them – until Mr. Bloome is astonishingly accused of chasing a young female across the Common. To his and Mr. Price Hargraves’ amazement, this reprehensible conduct makes him the hero of every woman and girl in the office, even Price Hargraves’ hitherto devoted secretary and the formidable chairman, Lady Chesapeake. So glorious is Bloome’s transformation that when the young person in question discovers she has made a mistake in her identification, Bloome is the reverse of pleased and determines to keep her quiet.
