5.0 out of 5 stars When tellly were great! 19 Mar 2009
A fantastic box set with some marvellous plays written by the greatly missed Jack Rosenthal. Worth the money alone for 'Another Sunday Another Sweet FA' about a sunday league football referee. A must for collectors of vintage British telly before it went rotten.

Definitely worth having a copy of as it includes classic material I've been looking after for several years, mainly...the 1979 television film "The Knowledge" featuring Mick Ford who famously played the character of Archer in the theatical version of the Alan Clarke film SCUM. This five disc set is the perfect introduction to what made British television brilliant in the 1960's & 1970's and showcases why Jack Rosenthal was one of the great writers of his day.

~(Please Note)~

I'd also like to point out that a previous reviewer has stated having a problem with the last disc featuring the television film The Knowledge saying the following about the sound quality..."Extraneous sound "tone" throughout (at varying levels) and annoying enough to make it unwatchable." I've not even noticed it until reading that comment as it is definitely not affecting viewing unless you have your ear right up against the speakers of the television. It is noticeable if you chose to watch it this way but really doesn't effect the quality of viewing the film as it has been watched several times over by several of me mates and I since purchasing the set without anyone complaining.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ready when you are Mr McGill 29 Aug 2009
I bought this for the play Ready When You Are, Mr McGill, of treasured memory, and I see it is now to be released on its own next March. This is the version with Joe Black, but there has been a broadcast fairly recently with Tom Courtenay, and that version compared with the Joe Black version on the DVD implies that the DVD version has been cut. One wonders whether the one to come next March is the full version. Of the other plays, my copy does not have the fault indicated by another reviewer who mentions intrusive noise during The Knowledge, and the whole disc is to be recommended for the joy of being able to revisit the work of one of the great television playwrights.

5.0 out of 5 stars Jack Rosenthal 18 Sep 2009
A fantastic reminder of the talent of Jack Rosenthal.Maybe the Beeb could follow suit and issue some of the stuff he wrote that they showed,such as 'Barmitzvah boy'.I particularly loved 'Moving story'and would love to be able to get my hands on the complete series.That was a young 'Deirdrie' on the touchline in 'Another Saturday and sweet F.A' wasn't it?
