The Alf Garnett Saga is a 1972 British comedy film directed by Bob Kellett and starring Warren Mitchell, Dandy Nichols, Paul Angelis and Adrienne Posta.[1] The film was the second spin-off from the BBC TV series Till Death Us Do Part.[2] It starts where the first film finished, but with Angelis and Posta now playing Mike and Rita, the roles previously played by Antony Booth and Una Stubbs.

Plot[edit]

With the Garnetts' Wapping home demolished, Alf and his family are installed in a high-rise council flat. Alf struggles with "living in the sky”, using lifts (which frequently break down due to power cuts "caused by the striking miners") and walking long distances to the local pub.[3]
