    Welcome to the Ours is a Nice House guide at TV.com. "The great Thora Hird starred in this show as a Lancashire boarding-house landlady named (what else?) Thora Parker. A widowed mother of two teenagers, workshy son Alan and sensible though trendy daughter Vera. She runs a clean, respectable house ("nice, you know, none of your tat"). "The comedy sprung from Thora Parker's all-knowing, canny housekeeping for her resident boarders, the itinerant lodgers who flitted into and then out of the weekly episodes, and friends and neighbours, like next door's Elsie Crabtree, Thora's former school buddy who was always popping around to scrounge something or other and have a natter. Thora's mother, Gran, was played by veteran comedy actress May Warden, mostly sans dentures, while one of the boarders, Alf Whittle, was played by the show's writer, Harry Littlewood."

    Welcome to the Armchair Theatre guide at TV.com. Armchair Theatre was an anthology series of one-off plays broadcast by the Independent Television Network. The show began in conservative fashion, broadcasting plays live as they would be seen on stage, but the arrival of Canadian producer Sidney Newman and the commissioning of works by promising young talent ensured that plays made full use of the potential of the new medium. The show is seen as an important influence over later similar programmes such as the BBC's The Wednesday Play. Armchair Theatre included two one-off plays that spawned major British television series: Out of thisWorld (1962) and Callan (1967).moreless

    Welcome to the Special Branch guide.

    Special Branch was a ground-breaking crime drama series from Thames Television, focusing on the tough cops from Scotland Yard's anti-terrorist unit.

    Shot in the studio on videotape and broadcast in monochrome, the programme initially starred Wensley Pithey as Detective Supt. Eden and Derren Nesbitt as Det. Chief Insp. Jordan. Eden was soon replaced by Det. Chief Supt. Inman (Fulton Mackay) and the show had its first makeover in 1970, with a switch to colour and new theme music by Robert Earley. The series, now led by the glamorous Nesbitt, prospered in its midweek post-watershed slot and was one of the ITV network's top-rated shows.

    After a hiatus, Special Branch was resurrected as the first series to be produced by Thames Television's new Euston Films subsidiary. The series now had higher production values, being shot entirely on location using 16mm colour film. Euston productions were designed with an eye on potential overseas sales, albeit with a self-consciously harder edge than the slick productions from ITC.

    Now wholly recast, the series centred on George Sewell as Det. Chief Insp. Craven, the archetypal underdog policeman who was prepared to break the rules to get the right result. The intense production schedule proved onerous, however, and he was soon joined by Det. Chief Insp. Haggerty (Patrick Mower). It is this reinvented version that is now available on DVD (although each series set contains a single episode from 1969/70!).

    After two years, Special Branch gave way to The Sweeney, but would be fondly remembered for its Euston Films years in particular.moreless
