Mind you, I had the same, more pronounced, shock when getting used to the foul language used in the brilliant Orange is the New Black series. 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!

Pro-white socialist Eddie Booth is disgusted when a black couple move in next door - but far worse than his skin colour, Bill Reynolds is Conservative. So, these comedies, in my view, aren't "racist", but rather portray ignorant white characters who are gotten the better of because of their racism and ignorance. The storyline revolves around racist bigot Eddie Booth (Jack Smethurst) who is constantly making comments about people of different races in a derogatory manner. he proved this by applying this to the word "paper" saying after a coupla weeks we'd see it as a swear word!

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. 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! A television comedy which centres around the relationship between two neighbours, as they attempt to live and work together, and their long suffering wives.The series was hugely popular at the time with 7 series, consisting of 54 episodes, created between 1972 and 1976. 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. I am happy to report that Love Thy Neighbour is every bit as good, if not better, than I remembered. Series 2 episodes are: 'The Housewarming Party', 'Voodoo', 'Clarky Leaves', 'The Bedroom Suite', 'The T.

If your easily offended then this series isn’t for you but if you’ve got a sense of humour then get this set, especially if like me you wasn’t born when this show was originally aired your going to wet yourself as it is so funny. It was good to see the old outlook on life but saying that I didn’t realise how bad it seems nowadays. 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.

LOVE THY NEIGHBOUR takes a lighthearted look at the problem of colour through the eyes of a white couple, Eddie and Joan Booth and a black couple, Bill and Barbie Reynolds, who move in next door. If you can get your head around the fact that these were different times with different views and ideas (which were the norm back then) then you'll find a comedy gem here with great performances from all involved. Clean comedy well written when you didn't have to watch what you said and all taken as harmless fun it's what's lacking today .If you’d like to file an allegation of infringement, you’ll need to follow the process described in our Copyright and Intellectual Property Policy. Viewing this series with modern sensibilities can make for a bit of a culture shock and I found myself wincing a little, shocked at the racist epithets casually spoken by the white protagonist, Eddie Booth.
