Yep, not sure of your age Amarak, but the rules have basically been removed as to what is now allowed on TV, Dave Allen poked fun at the Catholic church and caused outrage where he received death threats.
I was quite young mind, and he swore a lot. although not as much as my old man. :grinny:

Yep all those were fine, just that with Irish connections in the family it was deemed best not to encourage Dave Allen, which just made me more determined to watch it, and yes same era.
