About the Show

Summary of Plot

Bless This House centres on life in Birch Avenue, Putney, where travelling stationery salesman Sid Abbott (Sidney James) and his wife Jean (Diana Coupland) live with their teenagers: Mike (Robin Stewart) is fresh from art college and more pre-occupied with protests than finding a job; and trendy schoolgirl Sally (Sally Geeson). Sally is 16 and Mike is 18. Sid and Jean constantly battle to comprehend the new generation’s permissive ways and are usually out-of-touch. Their neighbours and best friends are Trevor (Anthony Jackson) and his wife Betty (Patsy Rowlands).– IMDb
