i have watched this show many years ago on TV have now just finished watching it again my regret is that i have finished and now i am wishing there had been a lot more series to watch at least i have it all on DVD so can watch again in years to come because i know they would never remake this show again in modern times as the critics would accuse jacko as being a sexist pig my how times have changed very thin skins these days so if you get the chance to watch the show relax enjoy and throw a big raspberry to all the sad sacks and remember sticks and stones may break my bones but names will never hurt me.
