Format: VHS Tape
Featuring the creaters introducing their six choices from this long running series, this compilation video features a selection of episodes shown over its eight years, finishing with the last ever one. Between each episode, there's a fun selection of over 50 clips featuring some of the best moments from across all six series. Although there's only six episodes chosen from the 64 made, they are a good range that provide a sort of mini "historical" overview to the series, the main characters and some of the key news events of the time. The personalities of each of the main characters are also illustrated well by the choice of clips and episodes. A good video, especially for the fan, particularly as these episodes haven't been on video before. Even though they may have been seen before on TV - albeit probably a few years ago - they are still quite fresh and can still bring a laugh, particularly because of the great comic timing and wonderful performances. If you've never been lucky enough to see the series before, this would be a good video as a great introduction, overview and taster to why it's been so popular in the UK, winning 17 awards, including 2 international Emmys.

Living abroad and without access to Channel 4, it was over 10 years since I had seen Drop the Dead Donkey but I had fond memories. They had not been tempered by time; it is indeed a very funny programme. The six episodes and numerous other clips on this DVD are thoroughly enjoyable (although the sound quality is not 100%). I hope that this issue is successful enough to warrant a full release.

From start to finish this hilarious disc gives a all to breif return to Globe Link News with its in-fighting and inter-personal communication skills!!!
The highlight for me was the inclusion of breif comedy snipets under various short titles, the best of these being Henry's description of political leaders he had interviewed.
Lets hope the distributer release all programmes on DVD if only to see the continual humilation of Sally by Dave, Henry, Damion and Joy.

This really took me back to the nineties. It was a joy to be reunited with Alex, Dave and Henry. Although I still think that the ending for George was very mean.
Very good episodes, highly recommended. Thid drops a star, as it didnt have the paintball or Christmas party episodes.
My highlight, Henry, couldnt pick any particu;ar moment, just almost all of it.

Quite hard hitting but really great comedy despite the news stories themselves now being just a distant past.

Characters are well crafted and worjk together very well.

Gus is without a doubt the lynchpin of the whole series.
