    Between 1980 and 1988 on BBC television and radio, the exploits of the Rt Hon Jim Hacker MP (Paul Eddington) - later Prime Minister - kept the British nation enthralled. Helped - and hampered - by his diligent Permanent Secretary Sir Humphrey Appleby (Nigel Hawthorne) and his Principle Private Secretary Bernard Woolley (Derek Fowlds), Hacker and his department became synonymous with government bureaucracy and administrative double dealing.

    Devilishly attractive Lord Illingworth is notorious for his skill as a seducer. But he is still invited to all the "best" houses, while his female conquests must hide their shame in seclusion. In this devastating drawing-room comedy, Oscar Wilde uses his celebrated wit to expose English society's narrow view of everything from sexual mores to Americans.

    In the first of two cringe-inducing episodes, Alan meets 'Britain's greatest living novelist', Lawrence Camley, and tackles him on the subject of not winning the Nobel prize for Literature. Feminist therapist Ali Tennant demonstrates her work on Alan, with surprising results, whilst a vile slur is cast upon Adam Wells, 'Carnaby Street's Mr Boutique', when he attempts to promote his new fizzy drink Vegina.

    Dickens' classic tale of kindness, truth, and virtue is utterly ruined here by having a member of the Blackadder family involved. Stuffed with deeply horrible people and groaning with cartloads of seasonal bottom jokes, it manages to squeeze a Victorian Blackadder and his Elizabethan, Regency, and Space Age relatives into a huge pie of entertainment which will satisfy everyone, unless you're a beadle, an orphan, or a long-dead member of the Royal Family.

    Yes, it's hello again from them. For nearly 25 years The Two Ronnies were a TV institution, a much-loved double-act, each with his own inimitable, individual appeal. Who could forget Barker's hilarious 'pispronunciation', Corbett's witty monologues, the risque limericks, the puns, the patter, and the parody? So enjoy another fun-filled feast of verbal fireworks. Inspired classic comedy from the two one-offs who said goodnight but not goodbye.

    Do Not Adjust Your Set is a 60s comedy show comprised mostly of satirical sketches, often presented in a bizarre, surreal and disjointed manner - much like that of Monty Python's Flying Circus, a subsequent show which several of the cast became part of. An important Monty Python predecessor and arguably one of the finest children's sketch comedies ever produced, DNAYS is certainly something you do not want to miss....
