Some of Britain's greatest exports have been created at the UK's famous Pinewood Studios, from entries in the long-running James Bond franchise to the hugely successful Harry Potter series. Not everything that comes out of the world renowned Buckinghamshire studio is guaranteed to be a success, however, and one of the most unusual British sitcoms of all time is proof.



Geoff Atkinson's Heil Honey I'm Home! was supposed to follow a re-imagined version of Adolf Hitler and his partner Eva Braun as they deal with living next door to fictional Jewish couple Arny and Rosa Goldenstein, though the show fell right out of the gate. The Board of Deputies of British Jews labelled the sitcom antisemitic, and the now-defunct Galaxy channel was forced to pull it after just a single pilot episode.
