The first black made sitcom created for British TV...
No Problem! was the first black made sitcom created for British TV... It was also the first British produced sitcom on Channel 4.
It was set in a council house in north London. Focusing on the young-adult Powell children, whose parents have returned to Jamaica, leaving them by themselves. Terri is hoping to become established as a model; her boyfriend, Beast, opens a night club; Toshiba runs a pirate radio station (Radio Runnings) and later releases his own hit record; Melba is their cousin, visiting from Jamaica; and so on. No Problem! was not radical, however black culture was embraced, right up to Aswad appearing in the final episode.
The cast were members of the Black Theatre Co-operative, which staged plays in and around London in the early 1980s.
