Dear Mother.... ....Love Albert
In between major successes in The Likely Lads series, Rodney Bewes also became the star of this ratings-winning sitcom chronicling the misfortunes of a naïve young man from the north of England who moves to London in search of fame and fortune.
Dear Mother...Love Albert was co-written and produced by Bewes, and based on the actor's own letters home, in which less-than-impressive details were omitted and triumphs wildly exaggerated; Bewes also sung the show's theme song, which he co-wrote with songwriter and musician Mike Hugg. Dear Mother...Love Albert also features Garfield Morgan as Albert's boss, Mr Strain, and Geraldine Newman as his landlady.
Unfortunately, the first series of Dear Mother...Love Albert no longer exists in the archives. However, the second, third - and fourth, retitled Albert! - do, and are released in this 3-disc, 20-episode set.
First released: Monday 14th June 2010

If ordering from a UK store, please note that you are in Region 1 (DVD)/Region A (Blu-ray), whilst the UK is in Region 2/B, respectively. This means that many - but by no means all - may fail to play. Look for products marked "Region free", "All regions", "Region 0" or "Multi-region". Blu-rays may also be marked "Region A/B/C", or variations thereof. You may also check whether your DVD/Blu-ray player supports multi-region playback (also referred to as "region free"), or whether it can be set to do so. There should, of course, be no problems with books, CDs, or other physical items.
