Over 30,000 little Tupperware boxes are buried all over Dartmoor, each containing a specially designed printable stamp and ink-pad, the locations of the boxes are listed in a large book of clues.

Enthusiasts scour the moor for them, in a hobby called 'letterboxing'.

Comic Alan Francis plays a character who, in order to get out of doing DIY, has lied to his girlfriend for six months by saying he is letterboxing every Sunday, when he is really lazing about with his mate Pete.

When his lie threatens to be exposed he rushes to the moor to try to actually find some stamps to try to get a prized 100 club stamp.
