    Is it me or does is not seem as bad as say till death do us part+in sickness and in health

    rudolph walker who plays bill i think i think he is the teacher in the mr bean episode where bean was taking an exam.

    And eddies wife joan in the pilot played by gwendolywn watts then she was played by kate williams guess she was only there for the pilot according to wikipedia the pilot was not broadcast.

    would be shown today im a 50/50 on this one.
    Hya Darren mate

    I have heard it was bad - but not quite as bad as Alf Garnett's various in-carnations (though only the Red Tape Brigade would say Garnett was o.t.t) even though I agree he was rascist - but his Commadarie with Winston the Home Help worked both way's in trading insults (belonging to a different time) that people did'nt deem rascist as deeply - but back to Love Thy Neighbour I never thought it was too rascist -it was more about prejudice's and differing cultures not getting on as suchI have always been lead to think/believe

    I mren ok it was a bit near the knuckle, but that was portraying the World as it was then - which is very similar to now (just magnified a million times more - if that makes any sense). The Writters then just had the Cart Blanche to write it via the TV Companies approval. May-be skirting round the edges quite a lot - but a programme of that standing Today - would be amazing and could easily be done I think (keeping on the safe side)


    Re:, Rudolph Walker - arguably his most famous role since Love They Neighbourand in general I think is/would arguably the Loveable Rouge that is Patrick Trueman on EastEnders he has played on/off for since the early noughties

    It is ironic too I think how his bussom buddy/best mate on EastEnders was Jim Branning played by the great late John Bardon who had had many controversial roles on Telly - none more so than the radcist biggot Jim was portrayed as on EastEnders - so tpo me that shows that if Love They Neighbour was bad neither Rudolph or John would do anything else remotley similar or subscribe to playing "opposites" as both did on EastEnders

    Yes, by 1990 Walker seemed to be like a younger lookalike of Trevor McDonald - he was the invigilator in the first Mr Bean episode.

    Nina Baden-Semper has had a low profile since LTN although she was seen advertising The Sun newspaper around the same time (when the paper cost 5p or 6p, so mid 1970s) and was promoting something about black people in Britain or something. I am certain it was on YT a few years ago.

    The final episode of series one of Grange Hill (Trisha and Benny playing truant to go to the Civic Centre) almost seems as if some of the dialogue had been lifted from a Love They Neighbour episode from five years previously.

    Those scenes indeed just spelt out Rascim at it's worst between Tucker and Trisha - not Trisha and tucker mind, but rightly or wrongly people knew no better in those days or it was thought of "being accepted (wrongly) as the norm"

    Not as i would ever have dreamed I'd agree with Todd Carty - but he was correct about Grange Hill in it's last day's that it'd not survive on Childrens Tea-time Telly - even though though that Waterloo Rd had extreme border-line and crossing the line at Rascim (though it was Adult's TV aimed at Children heavily) Grange Hill could easily of survived in such a role (later on at night) and minus Rascim

    I know that Fireman Sam did have one or two controversies in recent years, but why wouldn't Fireman Sam be shown today? Perhaps he would be Firefighter Sam these days?

    Post-person Pat, anyone?

    I would love to find out who was the writer and director of that episode, and whether they had also worked on series such as Love Thy Neighbour or shows like that earlier on in that decade. It does have comparisons when one thinks of the dialogue.

    the 1990s is almost thirty years ago. So, not "recent".

    Repeats can be recent even if original showings are not.
