Nearest And Dearest - The Complete Fourth Series

Comedy greats Jimmy Jewel and Hilda Baker star as Eli Pledge and his sister Nellie, in the classic sitcom 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.

This DVD includes the complete fourth series, broadcast in 1970.
