Here’s Mary Whitehouse in 1967 talking about her favourite programme. But what is it?

“Already there are some programmes serving a very real social purpose. Week after week that popular programme xxxx has brought to us the tragic side of life, but always with humour and drama and with a responsible objective in mind. It shows that the BBC can do it if it wants to.”

    That’ll be the same ‘Dixon’ of Dock Green who endorsed ‘giving the wife a slap’ at one point quite late on in the series?
