In this twenty-six-minute short film from 1992, written by Jim Broadbent and directed by Mike Leigh, Broadbent plays the twenty-third Earl of Leete, who takes a film crew on a tour of his estate. As he relates his family history, the crew begins to realize that all is not as it seems. It was during this production that Leigh and Broadbent first discussed the idea of a film on Gilbert and Sullivan.
