  Till Death Us Do Part
While the Garnett family, and Alf in particular, were clearly represented as disgraceful and abject characters, extreme even as caricatures, many critiques of the show suggest that part of its fascination for the audience was the kernel of truth buried in the lunatic wailings.
Till Death Us Do Part may have been written as brave social commentary but thirty years on, it looks seriously flawed and gives the lie to the notion that what the writer intends is always "correctly" interpreted and understood by her/his audience.
If bigots do not perceive such programmes as satire, and much of the research effort so far seems to indicate that a satirical reading is by no means universal, then they are unlikely to become less prejudiced as a result of watching these shows.

 Til Death Us Do Part - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Except for the physical absence of one of the parties, the posthumous marriage is no different from one where the betrothed parties are alive to personally profess their love for each other till death parts them.

 BBC - Comedy - Guide - Till Death Us Do Part
Till Death Us Do Part depicted a working-class household comprising Alf and his much put-upon wife Elsie ('Else'), with their slightly trendy daughter Rita and her long-haired 'leftie' husband Mike, who had insufficient money for a place of their own and so shared the cramped Wapping house with the Garnetts.
Utilising the new-found television freedoms that series such as That Was The Week That Was, Steptoe And Son and the ITV (ABC) drama series Armchair Theatre had pioneered, Till Death Us Do Part crackled with a rare energy, employing a style previously unexplored in the sitcom genre: a cross between kitchen-sink drama and observational comedy.
Till Death Us Do Part garnered similar bouquets and brickbats when its format was adapted for an American version, All In The Family and two UK feature-film spin-offs Till Death Us Do Part (1969) and The Alf Garnett Saga (1972, with Adrienne Posta and Paul Angelis as Rita and Mike).

Many have attempted to modernize the language, as in the 1979 American Book of Common Prayer (suggesting "until we are parted by death"), but few have been able to match the poetic power of the original.
