Watching unPC sitcoms should be part of the curriculum

The BBC's remakes of Till Death Us Do Part and Are You Being Served? are only to be appreciated through the filter of irony. But things like It Ain't Half Hot Mum weren't malicious.

James Cary's Top 10 Sitcoms, #9: Allo Allo

Yes. 'Allo 'Allo!. I loved it. And I still like it.

It's a big, broad, bawdy panto-style comedy. But just think about the show for it minute.

It's a comedy set in Nazi-Occupied France. Two British Airmen need to be smuggled out and anyone caught aiding and abetting them, or working with the French Resistance, will be shot.

It's a comedy.

Vicki Michelle: I earned just 220 a go for 'Allo 'Allo

Playing the role of Yvette was, as Gordon Kaye, my late co-star said, my pension. We weren't paid that well for the actual filming - around £220 per episode with only 10 per cent increases on fee year-on-year until we all stuck together and said we wanted to be paid more. Now I get money from the repeats but it is very variable.
