Alf Garnett is back in revival of TV classics

By Eleanor Bley Griffiths

Alf Garnett, the controversial protagonist of Till Death Us Do Part, is set to return to TV screens as the BBC revives a host of much-loved sitcoms.

One-off specials of three "lost sitcoms" ‑ Till Death Us Do Part, Hancock's Half Hour and Steptoe And Son - will be based on the original scripts.

The recordings of the shows as they initially aired do not survive, so they will be recreated by a brand new cast.

Till Death Us Do Part's angry protagonist Alf, originally played by the late Warren Mitchell, will be seen again in the 1967 episode A Woman's Place Is In The Home.

Popular classics also set to be revisited include Are You Being Served?, Porridge, Up Pompeii! and Keeping Up Appearances.
