Writer and comedian Arthur Smith presents a documentary exploring the character of Alf Garnett, who first appeared on British television screens in 1966 in Till Death Us Do Part and has been causing controversy ever since.
In Alf Garnett, writer Johnny Speight created a character who was both loved and loathed. As he pointed out generational conflict and political and racial tensions, some accused the show of blasphemy and incitement to racial hatred. Others praised it for satirising prejudice, while still others loved the character for his views.
This programme features news and entertainment footage from the sixties, classic clips from Till Death Us Do Part, and interviews with cast members Warren Mitchell, Una Stubbs and Tony Booth, writer Johnny Speight and committed opponent of the show Mary Whitehouse.
(An episode of Till Death Us Do Part follows at 9.30pm)
Following tonight's documentary, there's another chance to see the first of several classic episodes of Johnny Speight's ground-breaking sitcom.
