The programme is about a couple, George Basset (John Alderton) and Suzie Basset (Hannah Gordon). Each tries to start afresh after their divorce. They move to the country, only to find that they have moved into adjoining cottages.
One episode of the series won a British Academy Television Award for Best Situation Comedy in 1973. When the series was repeated in 1979 it gained more viewers than during its original run, and topped the BBC1 weekly ratings several times. This was in part due to the ITV strike that limited British viewing to BBC1 and BBC2 for several weeks.
In the 1980s, a three-episode VHS video was released.
