This review is from: Sunday Night at the London Palladium - Volume One [DVD] (DVD)
This was one of the "must see" shows of the 1950s and 1960s, sparking the careers of comperes such as Bruce Forsyth and Jimmy Tarbuck, as well as bringing stars to a huge audience. This first collection gives a fascinating insight into the television and entertainment of the era. In addition to many clips of the various performers of the time, there is also the "extra" of the special strike edition featuring Norman Wisdom and Bruce Forsyth. Picture quality, inevitably, is variable from clip to clip, but in general I must say I was impressed (given the age and the fact that I had previously seen some very faded clips) with how sharp and "cleaned up" everything seemed, and I certainly enjoyed the chance to re-visit this historic variety show.
