    The timing's perfect.

    Alf Garnett: Well, I mean, see if we go into Europe...
    Else Garnett: I thought we was in Europe. I mean, I thought we always have been.
    Alf Garnett: I know that, yer silly moo. I'm not talking about that aspect am I? I'm talking about the Common Market aspect of the going into Europe.
    Alf Garnett: Old Enoch's against it, in't 'e, eh? He don't want no more bloody foreigners over here. We got enough bloody foreigners here as it is. Bloody country's swarming with Eities and Krauts and Froggies and Spagnollies and Brussel Sprouts. All coming over here and taking our jobs off of us, aren't they?
    Else Garnett: Well, we can go over there and take the jobs off of them.
    Alf Garnett: I don't want to go over there, do I?
    Else Garnett: Wish you would.

    BBC casting have missed a trick.

    That link looks familiar.

    That's a great spot. It seemed your mate didn't read it properly as it answers his question, so I thought I would post it again to help.

    Aren't we all friends here?
    Possibly you didn't understand the OP - I suspect T'Decs question was rhetorical.

    The timing is immaculate, the irony will be list on some.

    Daft is probably more accurate than rhetorical.

    I used to think people got on here and I give people the benefit of the doubt by default. However, like most people, I can get it wrong.

    I remember in the very first few episodes it was "silly old cow" but the beeb got complaints so it was rapidly changed. Even my dad though 'cow' was a bit over the top on TV. OK at home and with the neighbours though! Even some of my schoolgirls (when I was teaching) referred to the Headmistress as that "silly old cow" and that was years later.

    Happy days.

    Going by the photo, it looks as if it will still be set late 60's/early 70's. It's a pity as I would like to see Alf commenting on vaping, streaming and social media.

    The Beeb is doing a series of these old sitcom recreations, including Are You Being Served, complete with Mrs Slocombe's pussy.

    I've heard some of the remakes of Hancock's Half Hour lost episodes on R4. They are very good.

    I reckon this series willl be a bit of a hit for the Beeb which is a comedy desert at the moment.

    I can understand remaking stuff that has been lost, as in the case of HHH (and I agree about the 'Missing Hancocks' - McNally is superb, although 'Sid James' less so) - hopefully, though, the beeb will find time to squeeze in original episodes of the various sitcoms too, at some point in the 'celebration'.
    Although not interspersed with celebrity talking heads, as they usually seem to do. I have no interest in hearing from Kenny Lynch about his favourite sitcom scene...

    all we need now is a remake of Mind your language...
