The Arthur Haynes Show. He died before my time but from what I've seen of this man he is very funny, bolshy obstinate man. Nicholas Parsons would generally play the establishment straight man and it had some really good guests like a young Michael Caine.

Dear John .. Think it starred Ralph Bates.

I forgot about that, Dear John was great! Why isn't it repeated on TV. Don't think it would be that dated, Porridge is still very popular.
I would like all the Monty Python series, have films, now let's just check if it is available?
Monty Python's Flying Circus - The Complete Boxset [DVD] [1969]
Seems to be available, I never knew that.
Dear John - Series 1 [DVD] [1986], can't see the whole set, but the main character died young during this series, so don't know how many were made. Usually a series was 13 episodes.

Viz the greatly underrated Dear John the first series is out next week
Also A Very Peculiar Practice - not a sitcom as such but drily funny and Peter Davison's best series

Keep an eye out for 2nd-hand copies on DVD of 'A Very Peculiar Practice'. We bought one a few years ago when it was on wider distribution and it's terrifically black humour. Several DVD sites indicate it's on release again soon.

Again not strictly a comedy, "Lipstick on your collar". Don't understand why this isn't, when "The Singing detective" is?

Dave Allen at Large

Any of Spike Milligan's Q / There's A Lot Of It About, they let Curry & Chips out on DVD so there is some call for the late Genius' work.

Also as Yannick says, any Dave Allen.

I was looking up "Cold Turkey" with Dick Van Dyke, and to my amazement Amazon have most of the Dick Van Dyke series from the sixties.

Used to love that series when I was about 8 years old, be interesting to see if they are still funny. Mary Tyler Moore etc. Mind you I used to really think Danny Kaye was funny too.

i remember the arthur haynes show very well. yes you're right he was very funny and quite controversial at the time. the show also starred nicholas parsons [as you said] patricia hayes who would play arthur's wife in the comedy sketches , dermot kelly and someone called leslie but i can't remember his surname.there was also a musical slot on the show. quite a few big names appeared including the rolling stones. hope you found this info useful.
