The Liver Birds

BBC One sitcom about two young women. 86 episodes (pilot + 10 series), 1969 - 1996. Stars Nerys Hughes, Polly James, Elizabeth Estensen, Pauline Collins and others.

Series 1, Episode 1 - An Interesting Condition

One way for a girl to tempt a fella is to use a potent perfume, and when Beryl helps herself rather liberally to Dawn's expensive bottle, it has a rather immediate effect - though perhaps not quite the one Beryl had in mind.
