A classic example of how the British could poke fun at their own failings and fears in less PC days and still show tolerance in real life

5.0 out of 5 stars Two rare and fascinating productions. 12 Nov 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Two interesting productions of the same play, recorded a few years apart, tackling issues of belief and predjudice the like of which you are unlikely to see on television today.
