Featuring the finest humour from some of the most well-respected performers from shows like Only Fools and Horses, Morecambe and Wise, Blackadder, Hancock, One Foot in the Grave and Are You Being Served to name but a few.

With over eighty minutes of classic comedy, highlights include Tony Hancock at the blood donor's clinic, Del Boy taking a tumble through the bar, and Morecambe and Wise doing their kitchen striptease routine.

Format: DVD
On buying this DVD, I was expecting a laugh a minute. With over 100 minutes of classic comedy moments, this DVD offered much. While there are some fanastic moments such as Del Boy playing it 'nice and cool' then falling through the bar and The Two Ronnies 'Fork Handles' sketch, there appears to be a lack of other classic moments. For instance, there is not one Monty Python sketch, even the legendary Parrot sketch doesn't make it, nor are there any contributions from more recent comedy shows such as The Fast Show or Goodness Gracious Me. Although the latter two are much more recent than the other comedy shows that feature on the disc, only produced in 2001, one would have thought that the BBC would have acknowledged these award-winning shows with some sort of feature.
It is a funny DVD and you certainly get your money's worth. There are plenty of timeless classic comedy moments on here and you'll soon find a favourite but after watching it, I was left wondering why certain other sketches were not featured and therefore slightly disappointed.

It IS a laugh minute, and has a great selection of sketches!
If you want ALL of the great comedy moments then go and buy the entire series of all of the shows featured in this DVD. I supect the other reviewers are simply "dour nitpickers". You should start including Laurel & Hardy, the Marx brothers and even Little Britain as well, if you really want the best of all comedy!
Everyone's humour is different. If you want a good laugh then this DVD is worth owning, albeit that you can pay a lot less for it than the RRP by looking at some of the other stockists, other than Amazon's main store.

This is the first DVD of the BBC Great Comedy Moments (the second DVD is 'More Great Comedy Moments) and is so worth while acquiring it. It shows many of the truly great comic moments that have been aired on the BBC shows shown over the years. Yes, there are only snippets of the different shows, but this just made me go and start to try and buy the different shows that I had, as yet, not bought. Some of the clips are of shows I had not seen before, but made me want to find them none the less. A great gift for people (and for oneself) who love British humour and will watch with fond remembrances of some of the great comic actors: Tony Hancock - Donating Blood, Morecambe and Wise - Striptease, The Two Ronnie's - Fork Handles and much more from Only Fools and Horses, Blackadder, One Foot in the Grave, Are You Being Served?...

Although the BBC claims to have put all of its greatest comedy moments on this tape (plus a nice introduction from Ronnie Barker), there are noticeable flaws. Many sitcoms, Fawlty Towers, Dad's Army, The Vicar Of Dibley and Absolutely Fabulous to name a few, are missing, as well as classic sketch shows like Monty Python. Because its mostly based on classic comedy, there are less modern programmes like The Fast Show, Goodness Gracious Me, dinnerladies, I'm Alan Partridge and The Office. Hopefully, these will feature on More Great Comedy Moments, the follow-up to this tape, to be released in May 2003.
But you can, however, sit back and relax (or indeed, if you're listening to Ronnie Barker, lie back and relax if you're on your honeymoon!) as you watch some brilliant comedy moments. Comedy fans shouldn't miss out on this worthwhile tape.

These are the videos BBC released 10 years ago. They have transferred them onto DVD, but I mean, they transferred them each and indicidualy. What a rip-off. there is 3 of these so-called "greatest moments" now, and they each go for about 1 hour. A DVD will hold 4 hours with ease. The BBC should take these rip-offs off the market and make one DVD release with all 3 videos on 1 disc, and maybe even think about adding a few more scenes as a bonus.
Rent this if you can, it's not worth owning.

The subject matter changes with 'clips' of various shows so quickly that you never get bored. Old material, but a good trip down 'memory lane'.

I have as a video tape, and it is so funny to be able to see it again.
Some of the top quality of English comedy.
