My Old Man - The Complete First Series
Retired engine driver Sam Cobbett has been prised from his terraced house in Ironmonger Row by the crowbars of the demolition men. With Sam needing a new home, an obvious solution emerges in the shape of the spare room in his daughter's new high-rise flat. Sam is, all things considered, a reasonable man. He fought in two world wars, and he's seen a lot of life. It's just that he has some rather strong ideas on how to live it, and they're not usually shared by his social-climbing son-in-law, Albert - whom Sam takes much delight in embarrassing at every opportunity...
Clive Dunn (Corporal Jones in Dad's Army) is Sam Cobbett, the geriatric hero of this sitcom from Yorkshire Television. Based on a BBC pilot that originally starred Ronnie Barker, My Old Man takes a look at the generation gap - in particular, what happens when a crusty, opinionated old timer ends up living under the same roof as his daughter and son-in-law. Also starring Dunn's wife Priscilla Morgan (as daughter Doris), Edward Hardwicke and Keith Chegwin, My Old Man proved a ratings hit for Yorkshire Television between 1974 and 1975; this release presents the complete first series.

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.
