Father, Dear Father

Father, Dear Father was a British television sitcom produced by Thames Television for ITV from 1968 to 1973 (which was followed by the 1978 sequel series "Father, Dear Father, in Australia", which was filmed and set in Australia).

A divorced British novelist Patrick Glover (Patrick Cargill), and his daughters, Karen (Ann Holloway) and Anna (Natasha Pyne), are cared for by the girls' Nanny (Noël Dyson).

A few years after Karen and Anna have married and left home, Patrick decides to go to Australia to do some research for a book he is writing. He intends to stay with his brother, Jeffrey (Ron Frazer), but Jeffrey unexpectedly has to leave home and travel to London for six months in connection with his work. Jeffrey comments that he is worried about leaving his daughters, Liz (Sally Conabere), and Sue (Sigrid Thornton), alone in the house to fend for themselves, while he is away. Jeffrey asks if Patrick and Nanny could look after the girls. Patrick and Nanny readily agree to do so. Liz and Sue, who had been looking forward to being free of adult supervision while their father was away, are initially unimpressed with the idea.

There were two American adaptations of the series concept, one called Daddy's Girls starred Dudley Moore while the other Empty Nest was a spin off of the Golden Girls. In South Africa, a radio play version was produced for Springbok Radio.
