My Old Man - Series 1 - Complete  (DVD)
Clive Dunn (Bootsie and Snudge, Dad's Army) is Sam Cobbett, the geriatric hero of this hilarious sitcom from Yorkshire Television. Based on a BBC pilot that originally starred Ronnie Barker, My Old Man takes a look at the generation gap in particular, what happens when a crusty, opinionated old timer ends up living under the same roof as his daughter and son-in-law. Also starring Dunn's wife Priscilla Morgan (as daughter Doris), Edward Hardwicke and Keith Chegwin, My Old Man proved a ratings hit for Yorkshire Television between 1974 and 1975; this release presents the complete first series. Retired engine driver Sam Cobbett has been prised from his terraced house in Ironmonger Row by the crowbars of the demolition men. With Sam needing a new home, an obvious solution emerges in the shape of the spare room in his daughter's new high-rise flat. Sam is, all things considered, a reasonable man. He fought in two world wars, and he's seen a lot of life. It s just that he has some rather strong ideas on how to live it, and they're not usually shared by his social-climbing son-in-law, Albert whom Sam takes much delight in embarrassing at every opportunity...
