LOVE THY NEIGHBOUR takes a lighthearted look at the problem of colour through the eyes of a white couple, Eddie and Joan Booth and a black couple, Bill and Barbie Reynolds, who move in next door.
Starring Kate Williams and Jack Smethurst as Joan and Eddie Booth and Nina Baden-Semper and Rudolph Walker, Eastenders, as Barbie and Bill Reynolds, this popular 70 s British sitcom helps to take some of the heat out of race relations by showing the funny side of everyday conflict.
Love Thy Neighbour The Complete Collection contains all 8 series across 8 discs.
Please note that this DVD Box-Set does not include the episode "April Fools" that has been broadcast on television.

I am a comedy historian and researcher, owner and editor of The British Comedy Guide - comedy.co.uk.
I have researched Love Thy Neighbour extensively - even going as far as finding Thames Television's production logs - and can confirm that this box set DOES include every single full episode ever made.
The only omissions are a 7 minute short sketch from ITV's 1972 Christmas Day special, All Star Comedy Carnival, and the film, which was made by another company.
Those who believe 2 full episodes are missing from this collection are entirely mistaken. The confusion has arisen because all the episode titles are UNOFFICIAL, completely made up by fans based on plot synopses published in the TV Times when the show was originally on air. Specifically, on certain repeated and rescheduled episodes, such secondary TV Times descriptions focused on different parts of the plot of the episode, so resulted in new titles being concocted.
The episode dubbed "April Fools" in fact varies between being Series 5 Episodes 5 and 6. The former is also known as "Eddie's Birthday" and "April Showers", whilst the latter is also known as "Bananas" and "April's Fool".
The episode dubbed "The Couch Outing To Bournemouth" is in fact Series 7 Episode 7, also known as "The Coach Trip".
To reiterate: the only TV instalment of Love Thy Neighbour missing from this box set is a 7-minute Christmas sketch. Sadly very few box sets, whether BBC or ITV programmes, include such specials.
For more information on the series, the unofficial titles of each episode and how such confusions arose, please see Comedy.co.uk: [...]
I hope this information has been of help to some.
Whilst being very popular during the early to mid 70's it did make rise to a great deal of criticism due to it's complete disregard to social cohesion and acceptance, if you were to study the episodes you do see racism on both parts. This boxset includes all 7 series which ran from 1972-1976, it did create similar controversy as did "till death do us part" due to the (in some cases) harsh racist comments and actions.
This will be something you either love and find hillarious or you hate and would find offensive. If it was to be aired on television these days it would have a continuity announcement warning of the likelihood to offence that may be caused.
I would recommend that you ask someone who knows you well and that remembers it as to whether you would enjoy this.
The pilot episode IS included but NO MOVIE. I feel so ripped off by the dvd release company when they persist to release box sets as complete when they aren't. Network are rumoured to be releasing the ENTIRE collection with ALL episodes AND the movie in a box set. Wish I had waited. Am adding to my review as I am fuming now as the price is so low. Like I said I wish I had waited. Roll on re release(he says hopefully) so I can get rid of this poorly thought out waste of money release.
