Like the previous viewer, I recall Me Mammy from my early teens. I adored the whole show, and along with Up Pompeii it remains by favourite programme of this time. Most episodes centred on Milo O'Shea's attempts to bed his lusted-after secretary Miss Argyle, played with deadpan glee by Yootha Joyce. I remember one very daring line - he promises to show her Paris, and she says she will show him the Arc de Triomphe! Of course, they never did get together, thanks to his religious mother. Another running gag was Mammy's plaster saints (literally she had figures around her house), and her constant cry of "Jesus, you've made me knock over Saint Bernadette of Lourdes", or whichever miniature figure she'd just smashed. I really hope some episodes of this great show survive - I would love to see them again.
