| Classic British Comedy of its time.....and I must get a little hand out on this watch!
Almost 50 years on I realise how much of an impression this show had on me, as I still paraphrase Nellie Pledge and her malaproprisms.

It's humour from a simpler time, full of non pc stuff, double meanings and very typical northern humour.

Not everybody's cup of tea, but I can watch now and still cry with laughter.
