about

Look … Look … Listen! You might learn somefink. This is the story of Till Death Us Do Part, the most controversial, most influential sitcom ever made for television. It is the story of a family at war – with each other, with the world, with religion, with royalty, with politics, with the BBC, with everything.

Whilst battles were spectacularly fought on screen, the campaigns and skirmishes continued behind the scenes, the conflicts just as explosive, just as vitriolic. In ten years, the Garnetts assailed the boundaries of taste, battered the limits of respectability, and laid waste the bits in between. It is the story of 1436 “bloodies”, 79 “silly moos”, three continents, two threatened prosecutions for blasphemy and a dog called Pickles.

There’s an abundance of arguments, attitude, aggression and alcohol. There’s lots of language, litigation and late scripts. There’s plenty of anecdotes of life imitating art imitating life, leading to the ridiculous idea of the “randy Scouse git” becoming our former PM’s father-in-law. Yes, this book has the bloody lot.

“Dirty, blasphemous and full of bad language” Mary Whitehouse

“Quite the worst programme I have seen during family viewing time” Mary Whitehouse
