Takes a lighthearted look at the problem of colour through the eyes of a white couple, Eddie and Joan Booth, and a black couple, Bill and Barbie Reynolds, who move in next door. This series helps to take some of the heat out of race relations by showing the funny side of everyday conflict. In this seventh series Eddie's troubles start with Jacko's hobby - collecting odd items connected with famous crimes. Eddie decides to hold a ladies night down the club and when Bill gives Eddie a taste of his own medicine, Eddie seeks the protection of the law. Re-election as shop steward is a must for Eddie to go to the TUC Conference and Joan books a coach outing to Bournemouth without Eddie's knowledge.
