The family has acted as the canvas many sitcom writers like to paint over; some of the best ever series feature squabbling siblings and pernikity parents.

Hugh Dennis, star of modern classic Outnumbered, looks at some of the key plot themes and the importance of the family unit within a series.

Look out for interviews with stars of 2point4 Children, a trip to Liverpool to take Jean Boht and her on-screen sons from Bread back to the Boswell family home, and clips from the likes of Rab C Nesbitt.
