Floggits ran for three series in 1957, 1958 and 1959, with a Christmas Special between Series 2 & 3. Gert & Daisy inherit a General Store in the country from a relative and head down to run it in this BBC Light Programme sitcom. Many familiar names starred alongside them in this series including Ronnie Barker, Joan Sims, Ron Moody and Hugh Paddick. Scripts were by Terry Nation, John Junkin & Dave Freeman.

Unfortunately, only four episodes from Series 1 (Episodes 1, 2, 12, and 16) are known to still exist which are all featured here in my Channel.

Gert and Daisy were the two characters of a British female comedy act who are particularly remembered for their contribution to film and radio entertainment during World War II. They were stalwarts of the BBC radio variety programme Workers' Playtime, where they would talk about anything and everything, but especially their fictional husbands: Bert and Wally. In the 50s they had their own radio series for Gert & Daisy called Floggits.

The characters of Gert and Daisy were played by Florence Elsie Waters (1893--1990) and Doris Waters (1904--1978), who were sisters of Horace John Waters (1895--1981), better known as Jack Warner of Dixon of Dock Green fame. Elsie and Doris were awarded OBEs in the King's Birthday Honours List in 1946.

They appeared in three films together Gert and Daisy's Weekend (1942), Gert and Daisy Clean Up (1942) and It's in the Bag (1944), which were all made by Butcher's Film Service. In 1959 they appeared in a television series Gert and Daisy which aired on ITV.
