Based on the Stephen Potter "One Upmanship" and "Lifemanship" books, Henry Palfrey tries hard to impress but always loses out to the rotter Delauney. Then he discovers the Lifeman college run by "Professor" Potter and discovers the secrets of success. But has he the courage to put all his lessons into effect?

William Neil advised regarding the Swiftmobile that his wife used to work at BOAC in Buckingham Palace Road in the late sixties and would get off the tube at Sloane Square to walk to the office through Pimlico. Turning immediately left into Holbein Place was a garage, on the left hand side, backing onto the station and the Royal Court theatre, “Frank Dale & Stepson's”. The site today is Sloane Square House, but they still exist today specialising in antique Bentley's and Rolls at 125 Harlequin Avenue, London TW8 She says that car was always parked there and was frequently taken out – some days it was there, others it wasn’t. Their current Website has a video showing the Holbein Place garage in the sixties.
