Synopsis

In the BAFTA-winning comedy about the Slough paper merchant where life is stationary, David Brent is more appalling than ever as his personality spirals out of control. His slow descent into semi-madness is chronicled here, in the scripts from all six episodes, with over 500 pictures taken from the broadcast masters and available exclusively in this BBC publication.
