Professor Ronald Crump (Kenneth Williams) is an archeologist leading a dig to Timpleton, where Roman remains have been found next to a caravan site. In the interests of 'cultural relations', the pompous professor is paired up with lovely Russian specialist Professor Anna Vooshka (Elke Sommer)

Vooshka only has a loose grasp of English - and a lax attitude to driving! She crashes into Crump's caravan, meaning he'll have to seek alternative sleeping arrangements on the dig, but sassy Vooshka is accommodating. 'Professor Crump and I will soon be having it off!' she says cheerfully.

Sleeping arrangements are also on Fred Ramsden's (Windsor Davies) agenda. The red-blooded butcher and his friend Ernie Bragg (Jack Douglas) are off on a fishing weekend, to the annoyance of Fred's wife Sylvia Ramsden (Liz Fraser). They're going to Timpleton too, but their interests are more promiscuous than professional!

Birds are also preoccupying another holiday-maker on his way to the caravan park. Arthur Upmore (Bernard Bresslaw) had planned a romantic break with his wife Linda (Patsy Rowlands), but she's invited her mother Daphne Barnes (Joan Sims) and her mynah bird. The crass avain is full of curses - most of which get blamed on Arthur! Joe Baxter (Ian Lavender) and his wife Norma (Adrienne Posta) are also heading to Timpleton, alone with their great Dane. Joe wanted to leave the hulking hound in the kennels, but Norma wouldn't be without him.

Fred's soon playing up, spotting two girls frolicking on the lawns. Ernie, on the other hand, is more interested in fiddling with his fishing flies than females. The electrician talks in his sleep - and is worried that any nocturnal natterings about holiday loving could spark a rumpus with his wife. He reckons he'll have to call the girls 'Charlie' so his wife doesn't get the right idea!

Meanwhile Fred's behaving like a proper charlie, joining the girls and hoisting their beachball over a neighbour's caravan, claiming that he used to play 'left back for Merthyr'. [2]
