Comedy Playhouse – Are You Being Served? (Pilot) Part 1

This pilot was originally made in colour in 1972, but the videotape was wiped by the BBC leaving only the black and white recording. It has recently been restored to colour by recovering the colour markings present in the black and white recordings. This is the first time it is seen in colour for over 30 years. It is the pilot episode of the long-running comedy series about the staff of an old-fashioned department store, Grace Brothers. Trouble is afoot when the Ladies’ Department and Gentlemen’s Outfitting are told they must share the same floor. (C) BBC 1972/2010
