During part of the first season of All in the Family, a reference was made to the real purpose of the show. It had to do with exposing bigotry.

I heard that on a recent Jeopardy broadcast. How can I document it?

@gollum,
All In The Family - Before It was aired (1968)


This is an un-aired episode of "All In The Family". The series was going to be named "Justice for All" in 1968.
After a remake and final approval, the first episode of All In The Family was aired more than a year later.

All In The Family - 2nd Pilot - Those Were The Days - 1969

Altogether, 3 pilots of All In The Family were made. The first 2 were for ABC, but they eventually passed on the show.
A third and final pilot was made for CBS and it sold. Each time, the actors that played Gloria and Mike were re-cast.
Other tweaks were made in each pilot, such as the show's title and the family's surname.

The 3rd pilot episode was aired Jan 12, 1971

The third (pilot) episode was the first episode of the tv series we come to know as "All in the Family"

I couldn't find any video on the third pilot episode.

It was a rewrite of Till Death us do Part.

Quote:
Till Death Us Do Part is a British television sitcom that aired on BBC1 from 1965 to 1975. The show was first broadcast as a Comedy Playhouse pilot, then in seven series until 1975. Six years later in 1981, ITV continued the sitcom for six episodes, calling it Till Death.... The BBC produced a sequel from 1985 until 1992, In Sickness and in Health.

Created by Johnny Speight, Till Death Us Do Part centred on the East End Garnett family, led by patriarch Alf Garnett (Warren Mitchell), a reactionary white working-class man who holds racist, prejudiced and anti-socialist views. His long-suffering wife Else was played by Dandy Nichols, and his daughter Rita by Una Stubbs. Rita's husband Mike Rawlins (Anthony Booth) is a socialist layabout from Liverpool who frequently locks horns with Garnett. Alf Garnett became a well-known character in British culture, and Mitchell played him on stage and television until Speight's death in 1998.

In addition to the spin-off In Sickness and in Health, Till Death Us Do Part was remade in several countries including Brazil (A Grande Família), Germany (Ein Herz und eine Seele), and the Netherlands (In voor- en tegenspoed [nl]), and it is the show that inspired All in the Family in the United States.[1]
