3.0 out of 5 stars Glad I've seen it, 19 Mar 2013

This review is from: Our House [DVD] (DVD)
As a huge fan of everything Carry-On I was looking forward to seeing this piece of history. I have vague childhood memories of watching this. Picture quality was acceptable given it's age. Pity there's only 3 surviving episodes

It seems that Bungs were a little smaller then I expected and aren't a good fit in some of my Demi-Johns

These cases are good value for the money. One was broken in transit but a replacement was quickly offered. They are ideal to replace scratched and broken cases

Whatshisname: The Life and Death of Charles Hawtrey
by Wes Butters
Edition: Hardcover
Price: £16.58

4.0 out of 5 stars Charles Hawtrey, 10 Dec 2011
Charles Hawtrey has always been my favourite Carry On star and I wasn't disappointed by this book.There was quite a lot of information I didn't know and lots of previously unseen photographs.Overall a very enjoyable read.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Nostalgia, 14 April 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
We're currently working our way through this massive boxset.My other half remembers watching them the first time around but I didn't see them originally but am enjoying them immensely
Just a couple of points to mention.One reviewer says it includes the Thomas and Sarah series, well it doesn't.However it's still good value.
I have found a fault though in our set.Discs 14 and 16 are mis-labelled for some reason so if you aren't aware of this you finish up watching episodes out of sequence.Other posters have commented on some episodes being in Black and White.This was due to strikes taking place during the early 1970's and many programmes were only transmitted in B/W

3.0 out of 5 stars Good but not great, 24 Jan 2011
This review is from: Telstar [DVD] (DVD)
I am familiar with much of Joe Meek's work and have quite a few CDs of his rarer more obscure material.This was a good film but there were some mistakes,many of which have already been mentioned such as Night of The Vampires depicted as being recorded in 1965(it was actually 1961)and I wasn't convinced by Billy Fury but my main criticism was the depiction of Heinz.I have a documentary recorded from TV in the 1990's and in it Heinz catagorically denies he had any sort of physical relationship with Joe and threatened to break his neck if he touched him.It is no secret that Joe Meek was Gay but the film deemed it necessary to shoehorn in a homosexual relationship and of course Heinz isn't around to contradict it.I know nothing about the author or director but I do know there are people in the media who feel it is obligatory to promote homosexuality where none exists as a form of justification of their preferences.

A great boxset at a a great price.I enjoyed watching these again and also the many extras.The thing with this show is if you don't like a particular sketch or character there is another coming along very soon.I never cared for the Channel 9 foreign TV station stuff and it did seem to go on for ages.Paul Whitehouse is a very talented man and this shows him at his best.Pity he seems to have lost his way in the recent series with Harry Enfield

1.0 out of 5 stars Mrs Pat Maud, 21 Oct 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Mrs. P. Maud Skipton.North Yorks says:

I agree wholeheartedly with other reviewers on this.I awaited this release eagerly after a previous DVD release failed to materialise 2 years ago.The first "talking heads" was enjoyable enough but then all the clips we had just seen in between were shown again as Chic's stand up routine.I have seen other clips of Chic Murray so I know other performances exist.The sanctuary and Glasgow Civic Hall were a bit of a dead loss really and I feel I've been conned by the people responsible for this release.It will go into my collection but probably never be watched again
