Alf Garnett passes away

Actor Warren Mitchell, best known for starring as Alf Garnett, has died aged 89.
Mitchell, who famously played the loud-mouthed, chauvinistic, homophobic, sexist, racist Alf Garnett in TV's Till Death Us Do Part, was in reality a left-wing socialist - the antithesis of the character he immortalised.
Years after this successful and racy BBC sitcom was running, Mitchell continued to be stopped in the street by people who really thought he was the working-class, anti-Semitic Tory bigot he portrayed - even though he himself was Jewish.
