Love Thy Neighbour is a British sitcom, which was transmitted from 13 April 1972 until 22 January 1976, spanning seven series and fifty-four episodes. The series was produced by Thames Television for the ITV network. A hugely popular sitcom highlighting and examining the clashes of class, and colour, in early-1970s Britain. Eddie Booth is a passionately left-wing, somewhat racist bigot, so when his new neighbours turn out to be black, he's far from pleased. But even worse than that - they vote Conservative. Understandably, Eddie puts Bill's back up right from the off. Despite their differences, however, each man is far more alike the other than either would admit, and a begrudging respect develops between them. After all, there is a common enemy: their wives!
