This must be one of the few British Comedy series which became quite popular in Pakistan, at least, once again, with those who could understand English.
There was a Pakistani Character in this series called Ali, and I think that the Jamila character was also a Pakistani. These two with the presence of the Sikh character made it an interesting viewing.
The jokes were quite funny, at times they got hilarious.
I am not sure about the exact premiere date of this program in Pakistan; I am assuming that since the program went out in England around 1979, it started played in Pakistan around 1982-1983, since I remember some of the episodes.
