Product Description

Clive Dunn (Bootsie and Snudge, Dad's Army) is Sam Cobbett, the geriatric hero of this hilarious sitcom from Yorkshire Television. Based on a BBC pilot that originally starred Ronnie Barker, My Old Man takes a look at the generation gap in particular, what happens when a crusty, opinionated old timer ends up living under the same roof as his daughter and son-in-law. Also starring Dunn's wife Priscilla Morgan (as daughter Doris), Edward Hardwicke and Keith Chegwin, My Old Man proved a ratings hit for Yorkshire Television between 1974 and 1975; this release presents the complete first series. Retired engine driver Sam Cobbett has been prised from his terraced house in Ironmonger Row by the crowbars of the demolition men. With Sam needing a new home, an obvious solution emerges in the shape of the spare room in his daughter's new high-rise flat. Sam is, all things considered, a reasonable man. He fought in two world wars, and he's seen a lot of life. It s just that he has some rather strong ideas on how to live it, and they're not usually shared by his social-climbing son-in-law, Albert whom Sam takes much delight in embarrassing at every opportunity...

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Clive Dunn series 29 May 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Ever the consummate Old Man, Clive Dunn was just 48 when he started as Old Mister Jones in Dad's Army, and just 54 when he played the Old Man of the title of this series. Ronnie Barker fan's may recognise the first episode of this series, since it is very similar to an episode of Barker's excellent series 7 of 1. When BBC chose not to make the pilot into a series the writer took the series to ITC and Clive Dunn replaced Barker. In fairness Ronnie Barker was better, but Clive Dunn is still very funny. All round an excellent British Comedy, I look forward to the second series coming out of DVD (unfortunately there were only 13 episodes made).

Clive Dunn's portrayal of Sam Cobbet as The Old Man in question is excellent and a true reflexion of many of us,. as we get older and are often fixed in our ways.It is my intention to show this DVD to my kids to prepare them for my possible arrival at a future date.I found this DVD topical and we can all learn from it.Enjoy ,It may be you ????
