This review is from: It Ain't Half Hot Mum - Complete Collection [DVD]  (DVD)
One of the greatest sitcoms this country has ever produced, yet it is almost entirely forgotten by the public and programming bosses. It doesn't get the credit or airtime it deserves, most likely due to the "PC brigade" picking fault with the way an Indian-born, Hindi speaking white actor Michael Bates played the native bearer.
This is a must have in any collection, it will keep me laughing for years to come. I was absolutely delighted with the price and the speed of delivery.
I do agree with one of the other reviewers in that the BBC should be ashamed of themselves for using a later series cover photo for the entire collection as it does not feature Michael Bates as Ranji Ram, who was undoubtedly the star of the first few series until he sadly passed away.
