    is one of the best-loved classic BBC sitcoms of the late 1970s/early 1980s and now just in time for Mother's Day comes the outstanding Butterflies The Complete Collection DVD box set courtesy of Second Sight.

    Featuring an all-star cast including Wendy Craig, Geoffrey Palmer and a pre-Rodney Nicholas Lyndhurst and written by Carla Lane, this hugely popular comedy ran from 1978 to 1983 and consistently topped BBC Two's most-watched programmes list.

    Ria (Craig), a suburban housewife frustrated with mundane family life, craves some escape from the drudgery. As hard as she tries she has never mastered the domestic arts and her well-meant efforts in the kitchen result in spectacular disaster. Husband Ben (Palmer) and layabout sons Russell and Adam live in fear of mealtimes as unidentified creations need coaxing from the pan and the words 'egg custard' induce panic. Desperate for some excitement in her life, could a chance meeting with the charming and wealthy Leonard be the answer she is looking for?

    Butterflies The Complete Collection features all four series made up of 28 episodes including the Christmas Special in a stunning five-disc box set and will be released on 21 March 2011.
