3.0 out of 5 stars Where are the rest?, 25 July 2006
This review is from: Futtock's End [1969] [DVD] (DVD)
The format of Futtocks End is very well described in the other reviews here, and I would only add that this piece, though dated, has retained it's charm and the ability to entertain through the sheer strength of the comic timing of Horden, Barker et al. But Ronnie Barker made two other dialogue-free short films in what could be described as a series. To have put "The Picnic" and "A Day Out" on the dvd would have given a total running time of just over two hours and made a very attractive package. What we actually get here is a missed opportunity and it has resulted in a poor value-for-money product.

"The Picnic" and "A Day Out" were released as a BBC DVD a few years ago. However this disc was soon deleted as the BBC, no doubt due to Ronnie Barker's estate demanding more money for doing so, later lost their license to release certain Two Ronnies related material.

Broadcast rights for the two titles you mention are currently owned by ITV here in the UK, whether they will or can release them on DVD I do not know.
