The Army Game
Foreign Affairs was a British sitcom that aired on ITV in 1964. It is a spin-off of Bootsie and Snudge, itself a spin-off of The Army Game and starred Alfie Bass and Bill Fraser as the main characters. The entire series was wiped and is no longer thought to exist.
Seven months after the end of the third series of Bootsie and Snudge, where the title characters worked in a gentleman's club in central London, Alfie Bass and Bill Fraser reprised the roles they first played in The Army Game. Bootsie and Snudge went on to be revived for a fourth series in 1974. Foreign Affairs was written by Barry Took, Peter Jones (who was also the script editor), Richard Harris and Dennis Spooner.
