Till Death Us Do Part

Till Death Us Do Part is a British television sitcom that aired on BBC1 from 1965 to 1975. The show was first broadcast as a Comedy Playhouse pilot in seven series until 1975. Six years in 1981, ITV continued the sitcom for six episodes, calling it Till Death.... The BBC produced a sequel from 1985 In Sickness and in Health. Created by Johnny Speight, Till Death Us Do Part centred on the East End Garnett family, led by patriarch Alf Garnett, a reactionary white working-class man who holds racist and anti-socialist views, his long-suffering wife Else was played by Dandy Nichols, his daughter Rita by Una Stubbs. Rita's husband Mike Rawlins is a socialist layabout from Liverpool who locks horns with Garnett. Alf Garnett became a well-known character in British culture, Mitchell played him on stage and television until Speight's death in 1998. In addition to the spin-off In Sickness and in Health, Till Death Us Do Part was remade in several countries including Brazil and the Netherlands, it is the show that inspired All in the Family in the United States.

Many episodes from the first three series are thought to no longer exist, having been wiped in the late 1960s and early 1970s as was the policy at the time. Although Speight said he wrote the series to challenge racism, it was felt by some critics that many people watched it because they agreed with Alf Garnett's views; the linguist Alan Crosby has argued that the constant use of the phrase "Scouse git" with reference to Anthony Booth's character spread both the word "Scouse" and negative stereotypes of Liverpudlians. In 2000, the show was ranked number 88 on the 100 Greatest British Television Programmes list compiled by the British Film Institute; the title is a reference to the Marriage Liturgy from the Book of Common Prayer. The series became an instant hit because, although a comedy, in the context of its time it did deal with aspects of working-class life comparatively realistically, it addressed political issues at a difficult time in British society. Mitchell imbued the character of Alf Garnett with an earthy charm that served to humanise Alf and make him likeable.

According to interviews he gave, the fact that some viewers overlooked Alf's racist views and regarded him as a rough diamond disappointed Speight. The show captured a key feature of Britain in the 1960s—the public perception that the generation gap was widening. Alf represented the traditional and conservative attitudes of the older generation. Alf's battles with his left-wing son-in-law were not generational and cultural, his son-in-law and daughter represented the younger generation. They supported the aspects of the new era such as relaxed sexual mores, music, etc; the same things were anathema to Alf and indicative of everything, wrong with the younger generation and the liberal attitudes they embraced. Alf was portrayed as the archetypal working-class Conservative; the subjects that excited him most were football and politics, though his actual knowledge of either was limited. He used language not considered acceptable for television in the 1960s, he referred to racial minorities as "coons" and similar terms.

He referred to his Liverpudlian son-in-law as "Shirley Temple" or a "randy Scouse git", to his wife as a "silly moo". However, Michael Palin writes in his diary for 16 July 1976 that Warren Mitchell told him that "silly moo" was not scripted, "It came out during a rehearsal when he forgot the line "Silly old mare"." Controversially, the show was one of the earliest mainstream programmes to feature the swear word'bloody'. The show was one of many held up by Mary Whitehouse as an example of the BBC's moral laxity. In a demonstration of Speight's satirical skills—after a successful libel action brought against Speight by Mary Whitehouse—he created an episode, first broadcast on 27 February 1967, in which Alf Garnett is depicted as an admirer of Whitehouse. Garnett was seen proudly reading her first book. "What are you reading?" His son-in-law asks. When he relates that it is Mary Whitehouse, his son-in-law sniggers. Alf's rejoinder is "She's concerned for the bleedin' moral fibre of the nation!" The episode ends with the book being burnt.

"silly moo" became a comic catchphrase. Another Garnett phrase was "it stands to reason" before making some patently unreasonable comment. Alf was an admirer of Enoch Powell, a right-wing Conservative politician known for strong opposition to the immigration of non-white races into the United Kingdom. Alf was a supporter of West Ham United and known to make derogatory remarks about "the Jews up at Spurs"; this was a playful touch by Speight, knowing that in real life Mitchell was both Jewish and a Spurs supporter. In interviews, Speight explained he had based Alf on his father, an East End docker, staunchly reactionary and held "unenlightened" attitudes toward black people. Speight made clear that he regretted that his father held such attitudes, which Speight regarded as reprehensible. Speight saw the show as a way of ridiculing such views and dealing with his complex feelings about his father. However, it was claimed in the boo
