Part of a Comedy Playhouse season, this one-off was broadcast on BBC One, on Wednesday 25 June 1975.

The show had many overlaps with Till Death Us Do Part. It had the same writer (Johnny Speight) and producer (Dennis Main Wilson). Both shows took their titles from the traditional wedding vows, and Bert was seen as the left-wing equivalent of Alf Garnett.

The show is missing from the television archives.[1]
