Summary

Series 1-4 of the hit radio comedy starring the man they call 'Britain's funniest Milton'.

Mention Milton Jones to most people and the first thing they think is 'Help!' So he's set out on a mission to help anyone, anywhere—whether they need it or not. Armed with a new motto, 'No problem too problemy', and accompanied by his faithful assistant Anton and landlady Pauline, he sets out to assist people in any way he can.

In these 24 episodes, he tries out an array of new careers, and becomes embroiled in numerous new adventures. Join him as he becomes a wedding planner (and attempts to track down a vanishing groom-to-be), turns financial advisor (only to sink the pound and fight off a Swedish invasion), takes up genealogy (and gets stuck up an unexpected family tree) and goes under the sea to save the Earth (as well as stumbling across a mysterious great aunt).

Whether he's running a B & B, launching a job agency, showing off his lovely buns as a baker or facing drama in the line of duty, he always goes out of his way to help out. Because when you're close to the edge, then Milton can give you a push....

Written by Milton Jones with James Cary and Dan Evans, this gag-packed comedy won the prestigious New York Festival Silver Award for Best Regularly Scheduled Comedy Programme. Also among the cast are regulars Tom Goodman-Hill, Dan Tetsell, Josie Lawrence, Ben Willbond and Colin Hoult.
