Default Mind your Language.

The 70s Brit sitcom that is

Me and family used to watch it in Abu Dhabi back in the 80s. Pretty dam hilarious.

Now I am curious why it was stopped in AD.
Was it because the series ended?
I recall a rumour that when the show featured an Arab , AD pulled it. Any truth to this?

I looked up Wiki for some info and they say the show was canceled because some people found it racist.

it was on when I was only a nipper, was it blacked up people doing pakistani accents or summat?

In other news, I have it on good authority, and I'm sure Confo will back me up - that the golden classic 'Allo Allo' was really bifg in Lebanon?
