Laughter In The House;
The Story of the
British Sitcom
Julie Walters
[Narrator]

Part one went from the start of the sitcom to the end of the sixties and discussed classic sitcoms of that time such as "Hancock's Half Hour", "Steptoe and Son" "Till Death us do Part" and my all time favourite "Dads Army".

Part 2 looked at the seventies and spoke about "Whatever Happened to the Likely Lads", "Rising Damp", "Fawlty Towers and "The Good Life" and many others and part three was about the alternative comedy such as "The Young Ones" and classic sitcoms in the 80's and 90's such as "One Foot in the Grave", "Only Fools and Horses", "Desmonds" and "Men Behaving Badly"

All in all it was a great documentary; perfect.

Get Some In

A British television series about life in Royal Air Force National Service (1955) broadcast between 1975 and 1978 by Thames Television. Scripts were by John Esmonde and Bob Larbey who had previously written The Good Life. The programme drew its inspiration from National Service comedy The Army Game, and from nostalgic Dad's Army, but the RAF setting gave it enough originality not to seem formulaic. Thirty-four (commercial) half-hour episodes were made.

The series has never been repeated in full on terrestrial TV, although the UKTV Gold cable channel has aired the episodes uncut.

These are copies of TV broadcasts from UK Gold.

Georgina Cates / Woodgate

Seies 1

Bill and Ben (the flowerpot men ?) seem at first sight a typical couple, married with children Jenny and David and unmarried man-loving family friend Rona. Further developments show, however, that they are prone to situations of an increasingly bizarre nature, belying the ironic implications of the show's title.

Also involved periodically are Ben's assistant, the aggressive Christine, his sister Tina, a fluffy fussy travesty of femininity, Bill's mother Bette and her sister Belle, Ben's father Frank, Rona's Auntie Pearl, Ben's arch enemy and plumber-trickster Jake the Klingon, snotty neighbours Dora and Leonard Grimes, and prospective in-laws Harry and Laura Carson.

Clare Woodgate (young Clare) left the show after two series, changed her name to Georgina Cates and headed for Hollywood.

This women's humour is new and refreshing and goes in directions you might not expect producing stuff that is both funny and sexy in a non-typical way for the times it's set - it harks back 20 years to wackier influences like Kenny Everett, Frankie Howerd (addressing the camera) and even Benny Hill pure no-apology sexiness. More of the same sexy madness from the woman with curves to die for including characters / sketches like...
