What is an ordinary couple? Here, as six relationships are put under the microscope of the camera, the universal themes of sex, power, illness, perversion and hair loss are dramatically revealed.
AN ENGLISH SQUEAK:- The apparently bucolic artisto-existence of Peter and Flick is shadowed by an ailment on her part that makes physical intimacy impossible.
SLITHER IN:- "Ignorance is bliss, that to me is the beauty of a coma." B&B owners Gordon and Sheila fit their swinging lifestyle alongside looking after Sheila`s bedridden sister.
ALL OVER MY GLASSES:- Michelle and Stephen are planning their wedding day. The first dance is R-Kelly`s Bump and Grind and there`s five boxes of Doritos for the reception.
STRAIGHT AS A FLUTE:- When not making curly sausage casseroles for the vicar, Beverley and Tony survey their neighbour`s Satan-inspired garden and tell of life under the full gaze of the Lord.
HAIRLESS:- "My songs are like my children" says singer Fonte. "Yet they`re also like my parents or a special uncle, who is particularly friendly at Christmas time.
MORE THAN HAPPY:- "You hear of people who have all sorts of sexual hang-ups.... and I`m one of them"> Les`s optimism has carried him and Ray through eight traumatic married years.
