"History Personified"

May 20, 2016

This week's episode features a chat with Professor Cliff Williamson, an England-based British culture expert, about "Are You Being Served?," a legendary BBC sitcom from the 1970's. Featuring memorable characters such as Mr. Humphries, Mrs. Slocumb, and Captain Peacock, the show was a true reflection of the clash of the U.K.'s World War Two generation and the burgeoning Rolling Stones generation of the '70's. We look at the class system of that time, and how they progressed into the '80's. It's a unique look into the formation of the show, some of the behind the scenes stories, and more.
