Erupting onto television in the summer of 1978, The Kenny Everett Video Show was an instant ratings grabber propelling the subversive, impish DJ to the stardom he had always deserved!
Kenny's anarchic mix of manic sketches, musical guests and dance routines courtesy of raunchy booty-shakers Hot Gossip created must-see TV, his comic genius running riot as he unleashed a line-up of much-loved, much-mimicked characters including gobby rocker Sid Snot, Gallic sophisticate Marcel Wave and the improbably-handed evangelist, Brother Lee Love!
Available for the first time, this set contains all four series and three New Year specials that Kenny made for Thames Television. And there's one thing you can be certain of that it's all done in the best possible taste!

TKEVS is one of those television shows that people of a certain age used to return home to watch, and then discuss it enthusiastically the following day in the office. I was in my very late teens when this was broadcast. This was one of the first series that I recorded on my video recorder, a Ferguson Videostar VHS deck (rented from the local MultiBroadcast). Although the recorded quality was poor the freedom to record anything off air, and later load a tape and just watch the series any time I wanted to was liberating - bear in mind that in those days for most viewers British television comprised three channels (BBC1, BBC2 and the regional ITV channel, in my case Thames Television). I still have some of the original VHS recordings of this series on VHS cassette, complete with Thames continuity announcements including Philip Elsmore and Peter Marshal. And guess what? I still believe we would be better served with just three (or four) TV channels of high quality than today's over-saturated choice of mindless mush and too many commercials! However, I am sure that others will disagree.
TKEVS series was truly anarchic - television hadn't been assaulted with anything quite like this before - it was continually pushing the boundaries, and so much the better for it. One never quite knew what 'Cuddly Ken' was going to do from one week to the next. I doff my hat to the IBA for allowing this series to be broadcast. Like any red blooded male, for me the highlight of the weekly shows was Hot Gossip dancing to a then-current pop hit which used to raise my testosterone levels (if you get my drift) every week. Some of the raunchy dance routines and the skimpy outfits the beautiful girls wore were stunningly sexy, and put the BBC's TOTP to shame. I can remember them to this day! Thank goodness political correctness did not exist in those bygone days of freedom of expression.
I am looking forward to the release of this inventive, refreshing and entertaining series and will be one of the first to buy it, and hope that each episode will be uncut. Anyone who hasn't seen this series before is in for a treat.
Full marks to Network yet again for releasing such a landmark series from a time when Great Britain boasted having the finest television service in the world.
I will update my review sometime after 19 November.
I deeply object to seeing DVDs for sale now because it is an obsolete format and an insult to the collector!
That said, I'm sure that NETWORK will do a good job with this but it's not good enough for the high price!
