George & Mildred
1976 Thames Television
Created by Johnnie Mortimer and Brian Cooke, this popular spin-off sitcom from 'Man About The House' saw landlord and landlady George and Mildred Roper (Brian Murphy and Yootha Joyce), move from their ground-floor flat to middle-class suburbia. The posh Fourmile family, Jeffrey (Norman Eshley), Ann (Sheila Fearn) and young Tristram (Nicholas Bond-Owen) lived next door.
George & Mildred
1977 Thames Television
The comedy live-action opening titles from series 2, first shown in November 1977.
George and the Dragon
A brilliant sitcom with top scripts by Vince Powell and Harry Driver. Sid James cackles and letches as chauffeur George, Peggy Mount waves her battle-axe as housekeeper Gabrielle Dragon, while John le Mesurier, as Colonel Maynard, ambles about the place as a prototype Sergeant Wilson.
Gimme Gimme Gimme
1999 - 2001 BBC Television
A remix of the Abba song was the theme for this sitcom about two flatmates in their struggle to find love which was hardly surprising when you consider just how awful the two characters were, portrayed wonderfully by Kathy Burke and James Dreyfus.
1978 BBC Television
A follow-up to Porridge followed Fletch in the period after his release from Slade prison. Sadly, only one series was made.
The Good Life
The Good Life ran from 1975 to 1978. Tom and Barbara Good decide to try their hand at self sufficiency whilst their friends and neighbours Jerry and Margo Ledbetter look on. The series starred Richard Briers, Felicity Kendal, Paul Eddington and Penelope Keith. The writers were John Esmonde and Bob Larbey.
1970 BBC Television
The Goodies ran from 1970 to 1977 with the BBC. The series starred Tim Brooke-Taylor, Graeme Garden and Bill Oddie.
1972 BBC Television
A slightly different set of titles here from 1972.
LWT blew a fortune on lavish props when Graeme, Bill and Tim switched to ITV for their ninth series. Executives believed that spending so much money on what was deemed to be "just a kids programme" was not a viable option, and just six episodes were made, plus a Christmas special in 1981. The theme is funkier than the Beeb version, and the titles show the chaps larking about in the Festival gardens on the South Bank.
1993 - 1999 BBC Television
Gary Sparrow (Nicholas Lyndhurst) discovers a time portal back to the 1940s in this 1990s Marks and Gran series. He juggles marriage to businesswoman Yvonne in the present and a relationship with barmaid Phoebe in wartime London, opportunistically taking back goods difficult to find during an era of rationing and taking forward authentic WWII memorabilia.
Grace & Favour
1992 - 1993 BBC Television
A short-lived follow-up to Are You Being Served? which saw the former employees of Ladies & Gents Outfitting running a hotel in the West Country.
Goodness Gracious Me
1980 Thames Television
This series was originall scheduled for transmission in 1979 but was delayed to 1980 due to the infamous ITV strike. The series starred Harry H.
