Product Description

Product Description

The complete ninth series of the long-running BBC comedy sketch show hosted by Ronnie Barker and Ronnie Corbett. A popular culture institution in its own lifetime, the programme begins and ends with the pair seated behind a desk reading quick-fire 'news' reports. In between, 'in a packed programme tonight...', there are sketches, drama serials, musical routines and a rambling monologue from Ronnie Corbett, before the pair sign off with their famous catchphrase: 'It's goodnight from me.' 'And it's goodnight from him.' 'Goodnight'.

Broadcast between 5 December 1981 and 23 January 1982 this 2 disc set contains 9th season of the classic "Two Ronnies" show which ran for 16 years.

The 8 episode serial running throughout the season sees the return of Charley Farley and Piggy Malone in "Band of Slave". The bumbling duo are hired by Mrs Bumstead to find the missing members of her on-board-ship ladies orchestra and protect the ladies who are left - but what does all this have to do with the mysterious blind beggar.

Sketches include:

- government announcement - equality
- crossed lines - telephone call
- society of "pismronunciation"
- the vet
- the guru
- appeal on behalf of the invisible
- Mr Simkins
- Open Univesrity
- Post Office
- shopping
- Russian tourist board
- railway drivers

Regular sketches are the "yokels" and the "cleaners".

The wonderful and iconic musical numbers are:

~ Rectory Down University
~ Grand Ole Opry - Slim Pittman and Polly Parton
~ Teeny Todd - The Demon Barber of Queer Street
~ Pearly Kings and Queens
~ The Mounties
~ Hendon Symphony Orchestra
~ Effingham Hall
~ Crop of the Flops

The singing interludes are

- Kiki Dee
- Randy Crawford
- Marti Webb
- Sheena Easton
- Madeline Bell
- Elkie Brooks
- Clodagh Rodgers
- Elaine Paige

Some of the outfits of the guest singers make you wonder whether they chose the costume and if they looked in the mirror before they walked out on stage.

Mr Corbett has his usual monologue in each episode just before the musical number, parties and bars, and there are the start and finish news bulletins.

I'm a huge Two Ronnies fan and series 9 is one of their best. It features some classic sketches, particularly the crossed lines sketch and Mr Simkins. The musical numbers are also extremely good, including Crop of the Flops and the Grand Ol' Opry. Perhaps the best part of this series is it was the best showcase of the yokels. Ronnie B was very fond of these two characters and its easy to see why, the Ronnies were having a lot of fun with the dialogue. The musical acts are varied across each episode, which is a nice change from the one act. Returning once more is the classic Charlie Farley and Piggy Malone in Band of Slaves. This is a really good series, as good as Stop Your Killing Me. Overall a fantastic series and great for any fan of British comedy.

I now own all 9 series of The Two Ronnies that have been released so far on DVD. While I think the absolute best series were numbers 3 or 4 through 7, (those had some of their most famous, unforgettable sketches) I can still say this: the only bad Two Ronnies are the Two Ronnies that you DON'T have in your collection.

Another thing I can say is that the video quality gets a bit better with each series, especially around series 7 or 8, and series 9 looks REALLY good. I think video tape technology must have improved over the course of those years...after all, the show did first appear in 1971. Series 9 takes us back to 1981, with Regan and Thatcher being the butt of many a joke. As well as British Rail, the NHS, trade/labour unions, and their other usual targets!

I'd love to go back to 1981 and watch these again in real time, for two reasons: 1) I'd be younger, and more importantly 2) Ronnie Barker would still be alive. But I have the next best thing in these DVDs.

So I suppose in a way, The Two Ronnies will never die :)

The ninth series of The Two Ronnies may not be at the level of the series 5-7 but there is still plenty to enjoy here including what would end up being the final serial to feature Piggy Malone and Charlie Farley entitled 'Band of Slaves' where the duo attempt to solve the mystery of a disappearing female orchestra.

There are also still plenty of classic sketches in this series including the sketch where everyone is named after the place they were conceived (all on the way to Montecarlo), 'The Boring Accountant' where attempts to make his employee Barker smile and gets a big hand at the end, Barker and Corbett as 'The Yokel Idiots' and the classic 'Crossed Lines' sketch with Barker and Corbett seemingly calling each other.

This set of the Two Ronnies is a classic. Do you remember the sketches "The Crossed Lines Telephone" and "The Talking Dog"? Well, in theses packed programmes you will find these and more. The loved characters of Charley Farley and Piggy Malone rise again. The guest singers include Elaine Paige, Marti Webb and Elkie Brooks. This series was originaly broadcast between December 1981 and January 1982. Which made the Christmas special part of the series. Oh, don't forget the rambling monologues from Ronnie C., "The producer said to me..." speeches. Once you have seen each episode, you will want to watch them time and time again. So raise a glass to this very British double act and another to British television history.
