At Home with the Braithwaites: Series 1

When housewife Alison (Amanda Redman) wins the lottery, she keeps her winnings a closely guarded secret for fear that it will corrupt her family.

An award-winning series that takes a humourous swipe at life behind Britain's twitching suburban curtains. Includes all six episodes from season one.
