4.0 out of 5 stars All the BBC 'Up Pompeii' episodes, not the film., 2 Mar 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Frankie Howerd Collection [DVD] (DVD)
.
The Amazon description of this "Collection" is misleading.
It actually contains

Slipcase 1
The pilot 'Up Pompeii' for Comedy Playhouse
'Up Pompeii' the BBC series 1, Nos 1 - 7
'Up Pompeii' the BBC series 2 Nos 1 - 6
'Further Up Pompeii' a one off BBC episode
In all three discs, 452 minutes

Slipcase 2
'Then Churchill Said To Me' - 6 episodes
One disc, 158 minutes

Slipcase 3
'The Best of Frankie Howerd'
Compilation taken from various sources, including 'An Evening woth Frankie Howerd', interviews with Parkinson,Russel Harty and Wogan. Also clips from 'Up Pompeii' which are already on one of the other discs"
One disk, 65 minutes

Despite Amazons description above,it does NOT contain the full lenght feature film 'Up Pompeii'

Well worth the modest price of the Collection for the BBC "Up Pompeii" episodes - the rest please regard as a free bonus !

Thanks for sharing with us exactly what was in the box right down to the amount of episodes in each series. You just sold it to me.
