This review is from: Stanley Baxter - Picture Show And Series [DVD] (DVD)
Stanley Baxter suited the half-hour series format every bit as much as the TV special. Nobody and nothing was safe from being sent up by him - from "Stars on Sunday" to the "Sunday Stir" tabloid, from "Whicker's World" to "Holiday 81" - all in the best possible taste, but all excrutiatingly funny. Every episode a TV gem.

'Scars On Sunday' was hysterical. I wonder if Jess Yates himself ever saw it. 'Elfin Nolan-Supertramp' was good too, spoofing all those pretentious Tony Palmer-directed rock documentaries. My favourite item though is Baxter's 'Barbra Streisand' spoof from 'Funny Girl'. Wonderful stuff. Thanks for your review by the way.

Hi, I just bought THE STANLEY BAXTER COLLECTION. As I don't want to duplicate my purchase can you tell me if these discs are the half hour show as the description from Amazon says otherwise, thanks, Tom
