The Goon Show Compendium, Vol. 9: Vintage Goons by Spike Milligan
1 of 1 people found the following review helpful
Finally. The BBC has decided to take its crown jewels and give them the treatment they deserve. Following from the excellent series of collectors editions of `Round The Horne' and `Navy Lark', the show we have all been waiting for is, at last, being restored, given some interesting extras and released in a definitive, comprehensive edition. Ladies and Gentlemen, it's the highly esteemed Goon Show!

The BBC only holds recordings from the beginning of series 5 onwards. Some series 4 episodes exist (and are finally being released in a separate edition here: The Goon Show: Series 4, Pt. 1 (Golden Age of BBC Radio Comedy)). Series 1-3 are, sadly, totally lost to us. Hence, this… Read more

This improved things no end, but could have been made a lot clearer… Read more

The HP Pavillion x360 13.3 in convertible notebook is a nifty idea. Opening the box you get a neat looking notebook computer. The gimmick is that the keyboard can fold right back under the screen to give you a tablet if that is your preferred modus operandi. So two styles of computer for the price of one. Not bad.

Notebook mode: the touch screen element still works when the keyboard is active. I love this duality, it is so much easier to press an icon with your finger than all that tedious mouse work. The keyboard itself is compact yet effective, the keys have a good positive feel. The mouse is OK, a touch sensitive pad which depresses at the bottom left or right for left or… Read more
