Terry & June is a BBC television sitcom, which was broadcast on BBC1 from 1979 to 1987. The show was largely a reworking of Happy Ever After, and starred Terry Scott and June Whitfield as a middle-aged, middle-class suburban couple, Terry and June Medford, who live in Purley.
The series starts as middle-class couple Terry and June Medford prepare to move into 71, Poplar Avenue in Purley, Surrey. They are in their late 40s, and have a daughter Wendy, who is married to Roger; both are rarely seen. Terry's nephew, Alan Medford, pays occasional visits when he always causes some form of trouble. Terry is headstrong, and determined, although his plans and schemes normally end in disaster. June, meanwhile, is patient of her husband, but frequently doubtful about his ideas.
Terry works for "Playsafe Fire Extinguishers and Appliances", and his boss is Malcolm Harris. Malcolm frequently has affairs, and he and his wife Beattie, a friend of June, frequently argue. The owner of Terry's company is Sir Dennis Hodge (played by Reginald Marsh who played a similar character in The Good Life), a grumpy man who rules the company with a rod of iron. His personal secretary of over 20 years is Miss Nora Fennell, whose fondness for Sir Dennis is not returned.
In the first two series, their neighbours are Brian and Tina Pillbeam. From the third to sixth series, the Medfords' neighbours are Tarquin and Melinda Spry. Terry and Tarquin are frequently competing against each other.
