Storyline

British Millie and American Maggie were stewardesses for International Airlines. Millie was very sweet, but kind of a twit, and was always getting into trouble, thanks to her penchant for sticking her nose into other peoples' business. Maggie was more level-headed, and was usually pressed into action trying to extricate Millie (and herself) from whatever trouble she had gotten herself into. Mr. Beauchamp was their stuffy English boss, Miss Fosdyke his secretary and Bert was Millie's uncle. Written by Marty McKee <mmckee@soltec.net>

Trivia

According to an article about the show at Wikipedia, NBC actually ordered "From a Bird's Eye View" as a replacement series to air in the summer of 1970, but decided instead to air the series in the summer of 1971 (the closing credits of each show carry a 1969 copyright date). See more »

Failed to take off, and taxi-ed around the stations
12 February 2001 | by See all my reviews

A British attempt at imitating the style of popular American comedies shows of that era such as "Bewitched". Despite the hiring of Sheldon Leonard, and Millicent Martin, it failed to gain a network showing in the UK when it was launched in September 1969, and was later launched in the States with added canned laughter and got the same reception . It actually deserved good marks for effort in trying to involve women in slapstick situations, which at this time had only really successfully done on an international scale by Lucille Ball. The 'swinging sixties' look was actually out of date by the time it was aired and the scripts regarded as silly, but then again Monty Python launched at the same time with a male cast. Plenty of comedy stars such as John Laurie (as of course the stereotypical Scotsman) make guest appearances to help the thing along. But not forgetting of course that another reason for its failure might be the fact that at the time in the UK, TV viewers were getting tired of Millicent Martin, who seemed to be popping up on any and every show and in those days would be called 'over exposed'. But basically its a jolly little show and everyone looks like they are enjoying themselves, so today this might appear fresh and summon new interest?
