5.0 out of 5 stars Magnificent veteran creative comedy!
Don't miss this timeless treat - half the Pythons, Marty Feldman, Tim Brooke Taylor, Jo Kendall, Barry Cryer (occasionally) and Bill Oddie (once)! You will learn that "The Four Yorkshiremen" did NOT originate with Monty Python (and Tim Brooke Taylor co-wrote the sketch) and that Mr Brooke Taylor has immense comic talents. His demonstration of the new dance craze "The...

3.0 out of 5 stars "Just you and me... and an Arab."
The Missing Link between The Frost Report and Monty Python - indeed, the show's famous Four Yorkshiremen sketch is often misattributed as a Python sketch - this compilation of surviving sketches from the 1967 series teaming Marty Feldman, Tim Brooke-Taylor, John Cleese, Graham Chapman and the lovely Aimi MacDonald (with bit parts by Eric Idle and a beardless Bill Oddie)...

This review is from: At Last The 1948 Show [DVD] (DVD)
A great DVD set capturing many of the early skits of the Monty Python-to-be team. Quality was OK given that the original recording technology was not great.

I was just turning 10 or 11 when this was shown on TV. A lot of the humour wouldn't be allowed now, but good to see for nostalgic purposes.

Particularly nice to see the lovely Aimi Macdonald, showing she can act perfectly well. Pity it is not in colour.

Very Funny - Politically incorrect it may be - what a shame that we do not make films like this today.

3.0 out of 5 stars A fossil but fun, 20 Nov. 2008
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: At Last The 1948 Show [DVD] (DVD)
Very dated but with flashes of brilliance. The five recovered episodes on this DVD are sloppily edited, with the Make the Lovely Aimi MacDonald Fund being introduced after appearing previously. The extra material is only partly connected with the show, mostly Tim Brooke Taylor's interview. A longer interview with Terry Williams barely mentions At Last the 1948 Show, focusing almost entirely on Do Not Adjust Your Set and (in Passing) Monty Python's Flying Circus. Obviously they put the same extras into both DVD packages.
Still, it's cheap.
