Card-carrying unionist Eddie Booth, a socialistic avowed racial discriminator, maintains a constant barrage of abuse at his neighbor, Bill, the happy go-lucky Jamaican with strong Conservative views, who is quite capable of throwing back insults as good as he gets. Waging a colourful feud across the fence, there is no love lost with these neighbours. When the local newspaper runs a "Love Thy Neighbour" competition, their wives, Joan and Barbie, decide to enter for it even though they will have to lie through their teeth to win. Amidst union tensions at the factory and a possible family wedding, can Eddie and Bill find a common cause to unite and forget their petty differences? The TV series Love Thy Neighbour, like BBC's Till Death Us Do Part, used comedy as a way of exposing bigotry by showing each side was as bad as the other, but over time has become a controversial chapter in sitcom history. The original series was a ratings smash which lead to this big-screen feature film version in 1973 starring the original cast: Jack Smethurst, Rudolph Walker, Nina Baden-Semper and Kate Williams.
