The sitcom was the most controversial, offensive and original programme of its time with the foul-mouthed, East London, bigot, Alf Garnett becoming one of Britain's greatest comedy characters. Comedy Connections reveals how Peter Sellars was the original choice to play Alf, lifts the lid on the simmering tensions between actors Warren Mitchell and Tony Booth, and discusses the language and racial attitudes displayed by Alf Garnett.

Interviewees include Warren Mitchell, Anthony Booth, Una Stubbs, Kenny Lynch, Ken Campbell, producers Richard Boden and William G Stewart, and former Controller of BBC One Michael Peacock.
