All Change (ITV 1989-1990, Frankie Howerd, Maggie Steed)

Children’s sitcom All Change focused on Two families, one rich the other poor, who were forced to swap places in order to inherit on a will. Quite unusual to Frankie Howerd in a children’s show but he threw himself into proceedings with a certain amount of gusto. The show itself tended to rely too much on slapstick for its humour quotient. Some great players appeared though.
