Reviews

All 15 episodes plus the New Year's Eve special from the second series of the TV variety show that was set in a mock-up of a northern working man's club. 'Compered' by Colin Crompton and comedian Bernard Manning, the show featured a mixture of stand up comedians and musical acts performing in front of an enthusiastic audience from the north of England.

Lovely bit of nostalgia. I was in a band called "Remember This" which was a Rock 'n' Roll band featured on this DVD. Lovely to look back. I can't believe how much hair I had and how thin I was. Those were the days!!

If you're a retro TV fan this is a must.

Shot at Granada in the seventies the producers have recreated the interior of a Working Men's Club and filled it with an audience of publicans. Add to that some of the biggest clubland names of the era (many of whom went on to be household names) and you've about got it.

They're all here... From the lesser known clubland acts to Roy Orbison, Matt Monroe and the Superstars... It's Seventies TV heaven. There's comedy, music, magic, speciality acts... Have a look at Series 1 too!

However... If you prefer your TV like the X Factor or think that Britain's Got Talent is what variety is all about then you might do well to leave this one alone.

Let's hope there are more to come from the TV archives

I bought all 5 sets of wheeltappers and shunters club for my disabled dad. He is 80 years old and absolutely loves the set. Brings back so many memories of his club land days and his era. You don't see that anywhere anymore. The club acts vary from really good to horribly bad but the mixture and atmosphere of the clubs are a great reminder for my Dad. Pity there aren't any more.

Excellent viewing for those who watched the Wheeltappers when it was aired in the 70;s. Memories, clubland acts, and the uncomparable Colin Crompton & Bernard Manning.

I've been waiting for some time to see these shows released on DVD. They are very entertaining and each show is reasonably short in length (so you don't have to comit a couple of hours or so to view!) Some surprisingly well-known personalities appear as guests - as well as some who were well-known and who are no longer with us or who seem to have disappeared into oblivion!

If you loved this the first time around on TV, then you will love seeing it again. Brought back memories for me of younger days watching it with my parents.

Fantastic viewing, and maybe even some younger folk will find it entertaining. There's none of this sort of stuff on TV anymore, which I find very sad.

I just bought this volume and checked it to see who the guests were as the sleeve does not list them all, haven't got past disc 1 yet but was delighted to see and hear Susan Maughan singing two songs - she was great and it makes me wonder why we never see or hear her anymore.
