Created and written by Sid Green (The Morecambe & Wise Show), Mixed Blessings stars Christopher Blake (That's My Boy) and Muriel Odunton as a mixed-race couple struggling to placate their disapproving and constantly bickering families. This popular and for its time provocative series also stars much-loved sitcom stalwarts Carmen Munroe, Joan Sanderson, and Ernest Clark.

Graduates Thomas Simpson and Susan Lambert are young lovers who are about to embark on married life, but their happiness is tempered by a deep trepidation. Social worker Susan is black, and out-of-work engineer Christopher is white... and breaking the news of the marriage to their respective families is only the beginning of their problems!

Exasperated by the anxieties of both sets of in-laws, the newlyweds decide to take up an offer of accommodation from Christopher's sympathetic aunt, Dorothy the only relative who believes the marriage will actually work...
