The funniest programme on TV that I have ever seen.
24 November 2001 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

I watched this with my parents when it came out back in 1980 and we rolled about the floor laughing. It is the funniest programme I have ever watched on TV. Brenda Blethyn was a winner way before her Secrets and Lies fame. An absolute cracker.
