n this classic TV sitcom, Gordon Brittas (Chris Barrie) is the manager of Whitbury New Town Leisure Centre. He means well, wants to do well and desperately wants to be a good manager. Unfortunately his best talent is to continually create recipes for total disaster But Deep down Brittas cares for his staff, but all he ever seems to do is to make their lives more difficult. Trying to rise above this, and to keep the Centre running smoothly, are his assistant Laura (Julia St. John) and of course Colin, complete with boil! Behind every good man, so the saying goes, is a good woman, and behind every maniac, is a good woman losing her sanity! Helen Brittas (Pippa Haywood) is no different as she struggles to cope with her husband's misplaced enthusiasm.

This set features in entirety the 7 series that comprise The Brittas Empire.

red dwarf was definitely better, but brittas wasn't crap, just not as good.

Very funny - was watching this the other week, getting a bit dated but still highly entertaining.

Heat added!

Yeah, me too, maybe we're both weird.

I only live 10 mins. down the road from Ringwood leisure centre so maybe I could go build a shrine to her.

Brittas wasnt funny at all

Having worked in a leisure centre - under incompetent management - I totally identified with and loved the show. I literally laughed 'til the tears ran down my cheeks. I thought it was well written and the comedic timing was brilliant. Thanks for the link. H + R added.
