Nearest And Dearest - The Complete First Series

Presented here is the complete first series of six episodes from 1968.

Comedy greats Jimmy Jewel and Hilda Baker star as Eli Pledge and his sister Nellie, in the classic, award-winning comedy Nearest And Dearest. Eli - an aging lothario - and Nellie - virtuous to the last, but in possession of a wonderfully flexible grip on the English language - inherit clapped out condiment company Pledge's Purer Pickles from their father. Much hilarity ensues amongst the malaproprisms, bolshie workforce and none-too-subtle double entendres as the siblings try their best to run a profitable company in spite of one another.
