The Larkins - The Complete Fifth Series
Starring comedy icons Peggy Mount and David Kossoff in two of their best-known TV roles, this fifth series sees the Larkins saying goodbye to Sycamore Street, as hen-pecked but crafty Alf and his domineering wife Ada move to a nice little café nearby, which serves as both their new home and their new business; they even enlist former neighbour Hetty Prout as a kitchen hand, and take on a new lodger habitual rent-dodger Major Osbert Rigby-Soames (Retd.). As if they didn't have enough on their hands, they also find themselves in charge of troublesome teenage nephew George...
This classic early ATV sitcom was created by Clapham-born Fred Robinson and based upon his youthful scripts for plays about a fictional Cockney family. With skilful comic playing and a script that ATV production controller Bill Ward described as the funniest he had ever read, The Larkins inspired great affection throughout its six year run. First screened in 1963, these episodes have been transferred from the original film telerecordings specifically for this release.

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.
