The life of the Garnett family from the late 1930s to the ’60s
This big screen spin-off was based on the BBC television series Till Death Us Do Part and was deemed successful enough for a sequel to be produced, The Alf Garnett Saga (qv) in 1972. There is one scene in this comedy that depicts Alf Garnett and his wife sleeping rough in the Underground during the London Blitz. Although some sources attribute this location to Aldwych station, visible decorative tiling patterns show that it is in fact the platform at Holborn serving that branch. It is masquerading as ‘Old Street’ and a train of 1938-built tube stock is present.
