    Apologies if it's has been posted before, but I've just found this online (am bored, exhausted and can't legitimately go to bed for another three hours...). Is it me, or is it a wonder anyone ever watched the show?

    It's taken from the Series I DVD.

    And yes - awful, isn't it.

    so many movies/tv shows of the 70s and 80s have bad trailers like this. It's kinda strange, but I guess that was just the style. If you go to youtube, you can see several 70s and 80s movies where people have re-cut what they call "modern trailers" for the films that had those old style trailers. And a lot of people even re-cut trailers to change the entire genre of a film. My favorite one is this one, a re-cut of the shining, just called "shining":

    I remember this trailer from the DVD. I can't remember what other British sit-com trailers of the time were like, and I wonder if it's typical of its era.

    I quite like it actually. The sheer cheesiness and quaintness appeal to me.
