Warren Mitchell - Till Death Us Do Part; my Mum nearly went into premature labour when she was having me because she was laughing so much at Alf and Co. They were the inspiration for All in the Family and Archie Bunker's Place of course.
Till Death Us Do Part is a British television sitcom that aired on BBC1 from 1965 to 1975. Created by Johnny Speight, Till Death Us Do Part centred on the East End Garnett family, led by patriarch Alf Garnett (Warren Mitchell), a reactionary white working-class man who holds racist and anti-socialist views. His gentle and long-suffering wife Else was played by Dandy Nichols, and his daughter Rita by Una Stubbs. Rita's bright but layabout husband Mike Rawlins (Anthony Booth) is a socialist.
Una Stubbs, Warren Mitchell as Alf Garnett and Anthony Booth. Mitchell began playing the character Alf Garnett at the age of 40 in 1966 and appeared in more than 50 episodes until the programme ended in 1975.
First airing as a Comedy Playhouse pilot and running for seven series between 1965 and 1975, Till Death Us Do Part was one of the most controversial programs of it’s time and almost certainly would not be commissioned today.
