Our House - The Three Surviving Episodes
Created by Norman Hudis who scripted the earliest Carry On films, this popular sitcom reunited Hudis with some of the films' most charismatic and best-loved stars, including Hattie Jacques, Charles Hawtrey, Joan Sims, and their future co-stars Bernard Bresslaw and Norman Rossington.
Enjoying a highly popular run in the early 1960s, Our House centres on the comic interactions between the contrasting characters who share a large house together. They include a librarian who transforms into a foghorn outside the hushed confines of her workplace (Hattie Jacques); an easy-going oddball employed by the local rates office (Charles Hawtrey); a woman with a slightly alarming employment record (Joan Sims); and a law student (Norman Rossington) in thrall to his overbearing father. Deryck Guyler (Please Sir!) and Roy Hudd guest-star.
Of the 39 original episodes, only three survive in the archive (all from Series 1). Unseen for over fifty years, what remains of Our House is essential viewing for all Carry On aficionados and lovers of vintage British comedy.

If ordering from a UK store, please note that you are in Region 1 (DVD)/Region A (Blu-ray), whilst the UK is in Region 2/B, respectively. This means that many - but by no means all - may fail to play. Look for products marked "Region free", "All regions", "Region 0" or "Multi-region". 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.
