Till Death Us Do Part – 1965-75 – 7 seasons now on DVD from Network
A controversial BBC tv sitcom that was first shown in 1965 and ended in 1975 with its 7th Season.
Created and written by Johnny Speight, it centred on East End patriarch Alf Garnett, a racist, sexist and anti-left white working class man, and his poor family. Played sublimely by Warren Mitchell, Alf Garnett was a conservative in a working class situation. Garnett had his long suffering wife Else (Dandy Nichols), his daughter Rita (Una Stubbs). Alf left nearly all his venom for his son in law Michael Rawlings (Anthony Booth and ex PM Blair’s uncle), a socialist layabout. Extremely controversial with Garnett spouting all his venom, the thing that saved it was it was very funny.
Now on DVD it’s a must for any uk sitcom fan. A classic from the past.
