I agree with everything that sthom-1 says. Absolutely brilliant!!!!!! I've been looking at cable listings in TV papers for years in the vain hope that this forgotten masterpiece will be shown on TV. Why is it that we get endless repeats of 'Dad's Army' (very good though it is) 'Are You Being Served' (in my opinion a load of rubbish) and yet this wonderful programme is never re-shown? There must be someone somewhere in television land who rates this programme. Only a few people I know remember this series and everyone of them rates it very highly indeed and can't understand why it is never shown on TV.

Why oh why won't someone get this released on DVD????????????
