Superb - long, long overdue!,
This review is from: The Morecambe & Wise Show - The Thames Years [DVD]  (DVD)
Absolutely delighted to see this release finally become available. So many classics on here: Sylvester & Tweety Pie, The Jungle Book, Ernie conducting the Syd Lawrence Orchestra, 'Evil Eric' the Stuntman, Des O'Connor trying to sing on the Christmas show, Ernie's au pair, and much more that's either long since deleted or never previously available. I've always liked M&W's work during this period, and it's nice to see the efforts of writers Barry Cryer & John Junkin, and director/producer Keith Beckett in the spotlight for once (regular producer John Ammonds and writer Eddie Braben returned for the '79 special and the 1980 series respectively). Oh, and Peter Cushing's still waiting to get paid!
