The Fosters - The Complete First Series

The first sitcom written both for and starring black actors, The Fosters showcased the early work of Lenny Henry (riding high on a recent win in talent series New Faces) as the budding artist son of easygoing family man Samuel Foster (Norman Beaton, who would go on to gain fame in '90s comedy Desmond's). The series follows the day-to-day trials of Samuel and his lively wife Pearl (both immigrants from Guyana) and their three children on a South London housing estate.

This DVD includes all 13 episodes over 2 discs, as well as the 1977 Christmas special.
