The Hotel Inspectors - S1-E4
Visible crew/equipment: When Basil enters the "Private" room, the camera is reflected on the glass door pane.
Suggested correction: This is way too vague to be accurate. The office (which has private on both doors) is visited by Basil on innumerable occasions throughout this episode and so needs to be more precise.

Mrs Richards: And another thing. I expect to be able to see the sea.Basil: [whispering to Manuel.] Deaf, Mad and Blind. [To Mrs Richards.] Yes, this is the view as far as I can remember... Yes, yes it is.Mrs Richards: When I pay for a view, I expect something more interesting than that.Basil: But that is Torquay, madam.Mrs Richards: Well it's not good enough.Basil: Well may I ask what you expected to see out of a Torquay hotel bedroom window? Sydney Opera House perhaps? The Hanging Gardens of Babylon? Herds of wildebeest sweeping majestically across the plain...Mrs Richards: [interrupting.] Don't be silly. I expect to be able to see the sea.Basil: You CAN see the sea! It's over there between the land and the sky!Mrs Richards: I'd need a telescope to see that.Basil: Well might I suggest you move to a hotel closer to the sea. Or preferably in it.Mrs Richards: Now listen to me. I'm not satisified but I've decided to stay. HOWEVER, I shall expect a deduction.Basil: Why, because Krakatoa isn't erupting at the moment?Mrs Richards: Because the room is cold, the bath is too small, the view is invisible and the radio doesn't work.Basil: No, the radio works. You don't.
When the Colonel first meets Basil, the same shot is used twice of the Colonel twitching.
