Ah, the halcyon days of satellite television. Those were the times when television producers went by the axiom of 'Quantity not quality' and 'more is less'.
KYTV seriously lampooned the shocking nightmare that was BSB and Sky television ("Just think, for an extra five pounds we could have had Keith Chegwin") and poked merry fun at the tripe that has actually become far too prevalent on television today.
Two of the highlights from this series are: 'The Green Green Show' which takes a look at the worrying state of our environment and cute pitures of fluffy seals; and 'Those Fabulous War Years', which bravely crosses the line of political correctness while discussing the atrocities of the second world war.
I have to admit, the whole series hasn't made me laugh as much now as I remember it did back then, but it still brought back fond memories. There was one moment of genuine brilliance with the firework display featuring the gift of fireworks from America including the catherine wheel and the snake.
There are seven episodes on this disc but sadly, no special features.
