Episode 1 - Trainers (9 Sep 2003)
New comedy series from Rab C Nesbitt creator Ian Pattison about an extended black family living in Walworth, south-east London. In the first episode, teenager Adele's attempts to prove to her parents that businessman boyfriend Dennis is a respectable pillar of the community don't quite go to plan - until her brother Aiden gets into trouble with the police.
Episode 2 - School's Out (16 Sep 2003)
Natalie looks forward to a school reunion, but Roly's reluctance to attend threatens her plans, and Grandpa's cheeky chat lands him in trouble, prompting him to find somewhere else to live. Work-shy Adele is forced to seek employment. Can she find a career which will pay big money for doing very little?
Episode 3 - Uncle Sonny (23 Sep 2003)
The family are horrified when Uncle Sonny makes an impromptu visit from Jamaica, and set about trying to come up with ways of getting him to leave. But when a pep talk fails and he brings a goat into their home, they are left with no option but to call on Grandma Sylvia for help.
Episode 4 - Heat (30 Sep 2003)
Natalie plots revenge on Roly after he forces Grandma out into the cold, while Grandpa dreams of his own bachelor pad and Aiden struggles with his work experience placement.
Episode 5 - Join The Dots (7 Oct 2003)
Natalie begins to feel bored in her marriage - a situation not helped by the arrival of a dishy new reverend who offers her a little more than spiritual guidance. Can Roly possibly compete with a man who has God on his side?
Episode 6 - Test (14 Oct 2003)
Natalie still wants a little more out of life, so when the handsome Rev Garstang invites her along to a classical music concert, she jumps at the chance. Naturally, Roly's not too pleased about this turn of events, so he decides to confront the man threatening his marriage - only to end up admitting that if he were Natalie, he'd want to sleep with the newcomer too.
