About this deal

Clean comedy well written when you didn't have to watch what you said and all taken as harmless fun it's what's lacking today . We use cookies to give you the best possible experience on our site, provide personalised content and advertising, analyse our traffic, and ensure you see more of what you love.

So, these comedies, in my view, aren't "racist", but rather portray ignorant white characters who are gotten the better of because of their racism and ignorance. The series uses made up words to insult each other, which couldnt be accused of racist because they were made up, were talking 50 years ago!I am happy to report that Love Thy Neighbour is every bit as good, if not better, than I remembered. To those born in the mid 60's like me, the first nostalgia trip is when you play an episode and the old Thames television logo appears.

So refreshing to watch a comedy from my childhood, without the crude rude swearing and disgusting jokes of nowadays, without gratuitous sex or violence.Series 4 episodes are: 'Hines' Sight', 'Friendly', 'Working On New Year's Eve', 'Eddie's Mother in Law', 'The Ante-Natal Clinic', 'Two Weeks to Babies', 'To the Hospital', 'The Big Day', 'The Mediterranean', 'Bananas', 'Teething Problems', 'Cat's Away', 'Ghosts' and 'Eddie's Birthday'. In this 1973 movie the happy family hilarity comes to a head when they enter the local 'Love Thy Neighbour' competition. All episodes are presented complete and uncut and have been remastered from the best available materials.

DVD transfer quality is excellent despite the age of the content, so top marks for the team that did the remastering. Mind you, I had the same, more pronounced, shock when getting used to the foul language used in the brilliant Orange is the New Black series. If you can get your head around the fact that these were different times with different views and ideas (which were the norm back then) then you'll find a comedy gem here with great performances from all involved.You can change your choices at any time by visiting Cookie preferences, as described in the Cookie notice. LOVE THY NEIGHBOUR takes a lighthearted look at the problem of colour through the eyes of a white couple, Eddie and Joan Booth and a black couple, Bill and Barbie Reynolds, who move in next door. To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. It was based around a white working class couple trying to come to terms with a black couple that had moved in next door.

The entire first series, plus the pilot, of the 1970s comedy which at the height of its success had over 17 million viewers. Eddie and his wife Joan (Kate Williams) live happily in a peaceful neighbourhood - until they meet their new neighbours. This language is not tolerated in this day and age but 40 years ago it is language that people used in the context presented in this programme. Story of 2 (sensible) ladies who get on, have a cup of tea, while their husbands try to get one over each other. For items that are dispatched using our standard service, we ask that you wait 14 days from the date of dispatch before reporting any items as undelivered.

We take intellectual property concerns very seriously, but many of these problems can be resolved directly by the parties involved. It was good to see the old outlook on life but saying that I didn’t realise how bad it seems nowadays.
