3.0 out of 5 stars Not a review just a comment, 11 Jun. 2008
This review is from: Best of What's Left of Not Only But Also [DVD] [2008] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC] (DVD)
Dear BBC,

If it's not sad enough that not all episodes exist.
Why not just "What's left of... Not Only... But Also" This would make more sense to me as we already have a "Best of" DVD. I'm sure that all Peter Cook and Dudley Moore fans want all that's left, even if it means one more disc and a few extra pennies.

If I'm not mistaken this is going to be a direct copy of what was broadcast by the Beeb back in the early nineties, so yes it will be a step forward from the current best of. I was aged 12 then, and the way the BBC are shaping up, I'll be dead by the time I get to see All That's Left.

Sloane says:
I think it might have been more prudent to wait and see what was on the release, rather than making an (incorrect) assumption that this is an old compilation with new packaging.

The BBC compilation referred to is 99 minutes long and according to Amazon, it's 173 minutes in duration.

Looking reviews of this release, there is additional material (e.g. John Lennon reading poetry), together with a 1974 documentary about Cook and Moore.

M. Miller is correct, this is a direct copy of what was broadcast by the Beeb back in the early nineties.
In fact it's worse than that, some bits have been cut from the nineties broadcast.
In episode 5 "Ol' Man River" is cut, I assume due to racial sensitivities,
and in episode 6 "Guide to the North Circular" 2 minutes is cut, because or rights issues with The Beatles "I'm a Loser" on the soundtrack. This despite the fact that they replaced it with another song when they released the DVD "The Best of Peter Cook and Dudley Moore".
