Product Description

Synopsis

From 1971 to 1987, and over the course of 12 series and eight specials, The Two Ronnies became one of the great British television comedy shows. Millions of viewers lapped up the sketches of doctors' surgeries, middle-class parties, government ministry broadcasts as well as the regular news headlines, Ronnie Corbett monologues, Ronnie Barker word-play sketches and fabulous comic songs. This selection features some of the best of these including: "The Short-Sighted Optician", "The Ministry for Sex Equality", "The Plumstead Ladies Male Voice Choir" and "News at Ton".

This DVD includes the sketches: Name Game (where Barker tries to guess Corbett's name with a night with his wife as a reward), The Short-sighted Optician, Computer Checkup, The Day After Tomorrows World, Squash (Barker beats Corbett at squash at his first attempt), The Ministry for Sex Equality (Barker in half suit/half dress), Love Me Love My Dog ("There's summat funny about yon dog"), Astrology (featuring "Madame Zodiac"), The Plumstead Ladies Male Voice Choir and News at Ton.
Although the sketches are OK, they're not the best that the Two Ronnies have come up with.
I can't understand why they haven't included the more memorable sketches like Four Candles/Fork Handles, The Phandom Rasberry Blower of Old London Town, The Worm That Turned, etc.

Having read the above reviews, I have cancelled my orders. I had quite forgotten how rotten the BBC are at putting together these great comedies of old. Even the Vicar of Dibley "complete" editions had missed some episodes! I shan`t be buying any BBC dvds any more - until (and this is a vain hope) they get their act together. Thanks for the warning folks!

I bought this DVD for my grandad to 'watch' over Christmas and he and the whole family certainly enjoyed it. Even though he has lost his sight he still remembers the sketches and still laughed along with the rest of us when we watched it.
Classic sketches that still get great laughs today. I will be happy to watch it again and again.

Bought this for my Mum as I have just bought her a DVD player - trying to bring her into the 21st century! She has loved the DVD - it is really good quality and arrived very quickly and well packaged.

the 2 ronnies are just classic, they always use inuendo instead of rudeness, which is far more subtle, from a by-gone age Im afraid, but we love their humour

These were bought for a young Belgian man who had only recently become aware of the Two Ronnies and thought them hilarious.

They were a great introduction to the humour of the Two Ronnies
