Early sitcom Friends And Neighbours told stories of two married couples living next door to each other in a converted Victorian house.
Interestingly all four actors had previously appeared in Terry-Thomas series How Do You View? and two of the writers from that series, Carry On stalwarts Sid Colin and Talbot Rothwell, also penned this series.
Peter Butterworth and Janet Brown were married in real life too.
