New Zealand television's first sitcom, Buck House centred on the antics of a group of university students sharing a Wellington flat. In this sixth episode of the first series, Reg — played by a fast-talking, afro-headed Paul Holmes — gets embroiled in his flatmate Joe's latest illicit moneymaking scheme. 'Escorts Unlimited Ltd', as Joe (Tony Barry, later to star in movie Goodbye Pork Pie) tries to explain, is a surefire winner. That is, until Buck House's other flattie, the left-leaning Jo (Jacqui Dunn) invites a member of the local constabulary home for a cup of tea. The late night comedy was considered edgy when it debuted in 1974.
Just because a bird might be enjoying herself, doesn’t mean she’s not working.– Joe Donovan (Tony Barry)
