Series 1, Episode 1 - Sitcom
A look at some of the well-meaning attempts television made to embrace the changing face of the nation during the 1970s.
Starting with the hugely successful sitcom Love Thy Neighbour, the series looks at some of the well-meaning attempts television made to embrace the changing face of the nation during the 1970s.
The advent of Channel 4 was a key catalyst in bringing diversity to UK homes during the 1980s and into the 90s, with shows such as No Problem!, The Cosby Show and Desmond's.
The film concludes with a look at the influence diversity and multiculturalism has had on society on comedy through shows such as PhoneShop, People Just Do Nothing and Chewing Gum.
