You Can’t Show That ! Well They Did In The Day

Sitcoms are no stranger to controversy, even today with watershed times, language etc.  However in years gone by they just put them out and worried about it later.

Till Death Us Do Part

This one was controversial in it’s day with it’s racist themes and language.  You’d never get away with some of the earlier episodes now.

 

 

Love Thy Neighbour

Perhaps the most controversial of all, it never gets repeated, although it did once get a full re-run on UK Gold.  A comedy of opposites, but a highly charged subject matter.

 

 

Curry And Chips

So offensive did the broadcasters find this it lasted only one series.

 

 

Are You Being Served ?

Double entendres at the ready.  This hugely popular sitcom caused problems with it’s pussy jokes and camp behaviour from John Inman.

You look back with fondness on these old comedies and for the most part didn’t give morals a second thought, we just laughed.
