From the star and writers of Nearest and Dearest comes Not On Your Nellie - one of the major comedy successes of the 1970s. When blunt Northern 'lass' Nellie Pickersgill (Hylda Baker) comes to London to look after her ailing father she didn't bargain on having to look after his pub too. The clientele are a handful: there is wide-boy Charlie; London Underground worker Ali and the queens of camp fashion, George and Gilbert. This complete first series set features all seven episodes, available for the first time one DVD.
