In Sitcom Dear Mother – Love Albert Naive northern lad Albert Courtnay moves to London but sends regular letters home to his mother in which he exaggerates and romanticises his day-to-day activities.

During the course of three series, Albert finds work with a confectionery company, moves into a flat with “a couple of dolly birds” and becomes engaged to Doreen (Liz Gebhardt, replaced by Cheryl Hall for the final season).

On the 25 December 1971 there was a short segment broadcast as part of ITV’s All Star Comedy Carnival. Season one made by Thames rest by Yorkshire. Season four called simply Albert!
