Alf Garnett Blu-ray and DVD premieres

Alf Garnett is set to return this month in a number of premiere Blu-ray and DVD releases from Network Distributing.

Created by Johnny Speight at the height of the swinging sixties, the hugely controversial – and popular – character played by Warren Mitchell caustically satirised the less acceptable aspects of entrenched working-class culture in the form of highly opinionated, true-blue bigot ideals.

50 years since it premiered in cinemas, the feature-length version of Till Death Us Do Part receives its first Blu-ray release. The disc also includes an episode from the original series, long since thought lost.

Till Death Us Do Part will be released on 28 January and retails at £17.99 on Blu-ray and £12.99 on DVD. Available to pre-order now from Amazon.

Continuing his knack for amusing and scandalising viewers and critics, the 1981 follow-up series Till Death… is also set for premiere on DVD.

Unseen for nearly 40 years, the 6-part series gives Alf a new lease on life and has the former docker relocated from Wapping to Eastbourne, where he and long-suffering spouse Else have decided to spend their retirement.

Till Death… The Complete Series will be released on 28 January and retails at £14.99 on DVD. Available to pre-order now from Amazon.

Finally, The Thoughts of Chairman Alf sees Garnett wrestling with the pressing issues of the late nineties over six mock-Q&A-style shows.

Given another chance to air his personal prejudices and dubious philosophy – he’s partially curtailed by late ‘90s political correctness.

The Thoughts of Chairman Alf will be released on 28 January and retails at £14.99 on DVD. Available to pre-order now from Amazon.
