did you just join to say this ?

you realise its only in good humour, none of the stuff in it is said with any malice

This was shown at tea-time so i very much doubt it had offensive racist language, it started to offend people i suppose with the racial stereotypes. Here are some of the quotes from the show imdb.com/tit…tes

English class for foreigners? No call for that thesedays.

But no one posted a deal for love thy neighbour,, and i know what time it went out, im old enough to have seen it when it first aired on tv, and if it wasn't racist why has it never been repeated along with L,t,n, next you will be saying bring back the black and white minstrel show,

It is the English that need English classes these days. They shun education and seek fame and fortune on X Factor.

Give me a sentence with You are ............. You are a stupid poof .............. LOL ,, was only watching this last night great price heat !!!!

I used to watch this with my mum! I don't remember our household ever watching Love Thy Neighbour, so mum and dad must have had some standards.

There is a reason you wont see stuff like this on tv anymore, and why it has never been repeated, thats because its racist, and as carrotming has just proved, its not only racist, its offensive also, and shame on the mod that deleted my post pointing out that this tv show was racist, i hope they come and explain why it was deleted,

It's a bloody shame the likes of you, the loony lefties, and the PC brigade have ruined society, just can't get over yourselves, have no sense of humor, and get your knickers in a twist over harmless stuff like this. Folks would be better off if we just enjoyed ourselves like we did in the 70s, and 80s.

not voted but this is only £ 8.58 from network on air who also have a sale on at the minute of ITV titles

. So people like me have ruined society, why? Because we find words like, ni--er, c--n, pa-i, p--f offensive, so in your own words you enjoyed. hearing these words on the tv in the 70s and 80s, now if this show was just harmless fun can you explain to everyone why it has never been repeated

But it has been repeated - on ITV throughout the 80s and then on satellite from the 90s.

no one has said it should be on tv at the moment, its just posted for people who enjoyed the series in the past, you get just as much if not more offensive content by stand up comedians , both known and unknown ones, on the dvd's they sell, again you buy and watch if you want to, no one is saying that should be on tv

It won't ever be shown on repeats on TV due to people like 47_ and the PC brigade and daily mail readers.

Well, like most commenters on here, I grew up with On The Buses, Dick Emery, Kenny Everett, Carry On Movies, Benny Hill, etc, etc, and I think I turned out pretty level-headed and open-minded about the human race. I think if you're going to have a chip on your shoulder it's gonna happen anyway....

I actually love this series and no I'M NOT BRITISH but I don't take offence it's light hearted humour bloody hell people need to stop taking things so seriously, I was more offended that you can't get a cup of tea or coffee for 10p anymore like they do in the series lol

I don't think Mind Your Language was offensive, or racist. The basis of each episode was basically an English teacher trying to teach foreign British pupils how to get a good grasp of English. It was quite a gentle comedy as far as I remember. It was on one of those TV nostalgia programmes recently...apparently it had all races watching and enjoying the series back then!

Now, if it was a compiliation of Curry And Chips (and I love Spike Milligan, but the clips are quite shocking to see!!) or Love Thy Neighbour, then you'd have good reason to get annoyed.

the programme was sold all over the world, people loved it, no one took offence

Still funny.

Of course we can all stand corrected by _47 who knows the true value of comedy as a self-appointed, self-righteous critic with no evidence for making his 'right-on' grandstanding comments.

Voting hot. Good find OP.
