Gnomes Of Dulwich, The (BBC-1 1969, Terry Scott, Hugh Lloyd)



Sitcom The Gnomes Of Dulwich detailed the adventures of three garden gnomes who lived in a garden in Dulwich. Big (Terry Scott), Small (Hugh Lloyd) and Old (John Clive) lived at 25 Telegraph Road, Dulwich, London. The trio were less than impressed by arrival of cheap plastic European gnomes into the area.

A clever series using a brilliant concept to poke fun at the Common Market issue that was a major talking point at the time.
