I'm honestly amazed at May Williams' negative review. We cannot possibly have seen the same D.V.D. Benny recorded three shows in 1976. Among the sketches here are 'World Of Sport' with him as 'Dickie Davies', a spoof of 'Bonnie & Clyde', Fred Scuttle planning a trip to the Moon, 'Fanee and Johnee Claddock', 'Whatever Happened To Virgin Wool?' - in which Hill brilliantly impersonates Elisabeth Taylor and Richard Burton - send-up's of David Bellamy, the I.T.V. pop show 'Supersonic', while 'Sale Of The Half-Century' has Benny as smarmy game show host 'Nicholas Parcels'. For a long time after its original broadcast, it was impossible to view 'Sale Of The Century' starring Nicholas Parsons - a former Hill straight man, incidentally - with a straight face.

While some items are stronger than others, there's nothing here that could possibly be described as 'dire'. The dancing group 'Love Machine', clad in space age costumes, are clearly the prototype for 'Hill's Angels'. There's a song called 'Dancing In The Nude' but, sadly, they are fully attired throughout.

Best of all is 'Murder On The Oregon Express' in which Hill takes off T.V. detectives of the day, such as 'Cannon' and 'Kojak'. Jenny Lee-Wright makes a fetching 'Pepper Anderson' - the Angie Dickinson character from 'Police Woman'. Leggy Moira Foot - remember her from 'Hark At Barker'? - also makes an impression.

It may surprise some to see Paul Eddington as Benny's straight man in one of these shows. Yes, the same Eddington from 'Yes, Minister'. Presumably Henry McGee was temporarily unavailable.

I paid full price for this when it came out, and felt it to be worth every penny. The '70's was definitely Benny's best decade.

This contains some of benny's very best sketches: the space ship, Fannee Claddock and Dickie Davis
Not only a genius of comedy, but a superb mimic
