No reruns of his biggest hit show as it would be considered racist. But it reflected the reality of the time it was set.

Oddly enough, 'Allo 'Allo! another wartime Croft/Perry sitcom is repeated regularly. Apparently it's OK to portray the German occupation of France as a figure of fun without any reference to forced labour, concentration camps, etc,

It is obvious that you can be racist about white people but not those of colour

'Allo Allo is a piz take out of dramas made about WW2 rather than a spoof about the war

I had not realised that Don Estelle (Windsor Davis's side kick on It ain't half hot Mum) had passed away some years earlier... :(
