I enjoyed the high life but not for long Piff Paff Poff.....
Loads of people have mentioned this one to me, but I completely missed it at the time. The fact that the main stars went on to fame and fortune means its of interest. Currently on my 'to watch' list!

Just remembered this - "The Walshes" from the pen of Graham Linehan in 2014. I thought it was hilarious, but sadly they only made 3 episodes.
Or is that too recent................
Yeah, that one's a little too recent. I'm going up to the early 00s at the latest - the rise in power of the internet after this means that everything is pretty well preserved online already.

Me Mammy?Starring Milo O'Shea Late 60s sitcom, it doesn't have a DVD release, not all episodes survive. I know it has more than one series, but not all episodes are available though and came from BBC Comedy Playhouse.
I hadn't heard of that one, so looks interesting. It appears that the very first episode still exists and then nothing else until the third series (and it's only black and white telerecordings of the original colour episodes). Doesn't look as though any episodes are readily available at any archives, though, which is a shame as it would be perfect for the book.

I mentioned that in a post on the Kaleidoscope facebook group, and there was a comment from someone who was a boom operator on it and said that it wasn't very funny, and that he wondered if it was only made for the pun in the title.
I remember seeing that. It's the lack of evidence that makes it all the more intriguing!
