Review

Our Score
One of the great strengths of the original TV series of Till Death Us Do Part was the loose, discursive nature of each episode and the topicality of many of the Alf Garnett character's diatribes about politics, race, religion and royalty. Obviously, the feature format precluded the use of a similar structure and writer Johnny Speight's decision to opt for a Millions like Us account of family fortunes from the 1930s to contemporary times only partly comes off. There are highlights, such as Alf at the 1966 World Cup final, but not many, and they're not up to the television standard.

Summary

Bigoted Londoner Alf Garnett faces a series of challenges over the course of 30 years, as he lives through the Second World War and refuses to adapt to the social changes in the 1960s, particularly when faced with a long-haired left-wing son-in-law. Comedy based on the sitcom, starring Warren Mitchell, Una Stubbs and Brian Blessed. Including FYI Daily.
