But when they get there, it rains non-stop, there’s no food, and their basic survival skills turn out to be somewhat limited. Matters are not helped by the arrival of Uncle Monty.This classic British comedy is steeped in period detail and atmosphere, and packed with masterful comic dialogue and set pieces screening will be introduced by Prof. Justin Smith from The University of Portsmouth.
