About this deal

So refreshing to watch a comedy from my childhood, without the crude rude swearing and disgusting jokes of nowadays, without gratuitous sex or violence. The series uses made up words to insult each other, which couldnt be accused of racist because they were made up, were talking 50 years ago!

In this 1973 movie the happy family hilarity comes to a head when they enter the local 'Love Thy Neighbour' competition.When will people get it through their heads that this is exactly how it was back then and you cannot apply todays ideology to a programme that is almost 40 years old.

Lots of witty stories showing up how stupid prejudices are, prejudices of politics, race and with flitterings of seriousness for instance showing womens lack of rights. Its comic spin on racism, politics and general childish antagonism was loved by millions and the series remains a firm favourite to this day.It was based around a white working class couple trying to come to terms with a black couple that had moved in next door. he proved this by applying this to the word "paper" saying after a coupla weeks we'd see it as a swear word! Series 5 episodes are: 'Reggie', 'Jacko's Wedding', 'Duel at Dawn', 'The Darts' Final', 'Royal Blood', 'Club Concert' and 'The Nannies'. For items that are dispatched using our standard service, we ask that you wait 14 days from the date of dispatch before reporting any items as undelivered. To those born in the mid 60's like me, the first nostalgia trip is when you play an episode and the old Thames television logo appears.

Highly popular and more than a little controversial Love Thy Neighbour consistently appeared in the top three programmes of the week throughout the majority of its eight-series run; even its repeats reached the top of the charts! The series was hugely popular at the time with 7 series, consisting of 54 episodes, created between 1972 and 1976. Note: Our refurbished grades - Pristine, Very Good and Good - are solely based on the cosmetic condition of the phone. The embarrassingly racist comments of the day on both sides were hilariously near the knuckle in those days and aren't spoken these days This wonderfully wicked set of clichés brings back fond memories of its protagonists and is a delight to own, even if it is just to embarrass my grandchildren!

A white, working-class, socialist has his world turned upside down when a black, educated, Tory moves in next door. Eddie Booth (Jack Smethurst) hates his implacable Jamaican neighbours, but when the two families get a chance to win some money in a ‘Love Thy Neighbour’ competition, they pretend to bury the hatchet. I'd only seen a few episodes, but when I saw it available on DVD and including all eight series along with the movie, I just had to get it. Highly popular and more than a little controversial Love Thy Neighbour consistently appeared in the top three programmes of the week throughout the majority of its eight series run even its repeats reached the top of the charts!
