Anyone who is 'in' to variety will enjoy seeing this series again. In between the slightly annoying Chairman's (Colin Crompton) frequent interruptions, there are some fine variety acts, comedians and singers, such as Bill Haley and his Comets, The Three Degrees, Lonnie Donegan, Gene Pitney, Stephane Grappelli, Cannon & Ball, Jimmy Jewel, Little & Large, The Krankies, amongst who you also find other oddities like pianist Mrs Mills and entertaining circus-style cabaret acts like dancing Kossacks and vent acts, not to mention resident Compere, Bernard Manning. Perhaps a little 'cheap and cheerful', it none the less is a great double DVD giving nearly 5 hours of, on the whole (with the odd exception), good old variety acts. Recommended.
