'Ere, Pete, look what I found.
I'd love to Dud, but you need to actually show it to me.
'Ere it is, Pete. Funny looking thing, innit?
Not really, Dud, no. You know what this is don't you?
Do you think I'm a bloody idiot or something?
Now think, Dud. Do you really, in your heart of hearts, want an honest answer to that question?
Er, well not really, Pete, if you put it like that. Alright then, what is it?
What this is, Dud, is a DVD.
A DVD, Pete?
A DVD, Dud.
What's a DVD, Pete?
A DVD, Dud, is a wonderful thing. It's a shiny silver disc on what is recorded sound and pictures.
Blimey, Pete, that's clever. 'Ere, 'ow come I've never heard of it?
Because, sadly, Dud, you're not. Now this particular DVD contains a selection of our sketches from Not Only But Also.
You mean, like the sketches what we done for the telly and that?
That is precisely what I mean Dud. All we have to do is pop it into a machine what plays discs like this, and there before our very eyes, are the pair of us in all our BBC glory!
Bloody 'ell! You mean, like, we can see ourselves talking about that bloody Greta Garbo and me singing about Mama's Got A Brand New Bag, sort of thing, Pete?
Yes indeed we can, Dud. Not to mention loads more examples of our 60s comic genius what has been preserved for posterity for the benefit of future generations, Dud.
Can we watch it then, Pete?
Er, alas no, Dud. We don't actually have one of them DVD players.
Oh!! I was looking forward to seeing myself on the telly!
Never mind, let's have another pint, Dud. Cheers!
Ooh, ta, Pete. Cheers!
