About this deal

If you’ve already done that, your item hasn’t arrived, or it’s not as described, you can report that to Etsy by opening a case. 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! 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. The storyline revolves around racist bigot Eddie Booth (Jack Smethurst) who is constantly making comments about people of different races in a derogatory manner. You can choose your friends, but whether you live in a back-to-back, a suburban semi or a mansion, you can rarely choose your neighbours.

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. It was based around a white working class couple trying to come to terms with a black couple that had moved in next door. DVD transfer quality is excellent despite the age of the content, so top marks for the team that did the remastering.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. All episodes are presented complete and uncut and have been remastered from the best available materials. Whether you're looking for a specific series/season, or a complete box set collection, then we can do the hard work for you! In this 1973 movie the happy family hilarity comes to a head when they enter the local 'Love Thy Neighbour' competition. If you look at another TV show of that period, Rising Damp, it also portrays Leonard Rosseter's character, Mr Rigsby, as ignorant more than racist.

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. Eddie and his wife Joan (Kate Williams) live happily in a peaceful neighbourhood - until they meet their new neighbours. If you are in the North America, look out for US/Canadian flag icons on popular product listings for direct links. 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.

It was good to see the old outlook on life but saying that I didn’t realise how bad it seems nowadays.
