excellent dvd set, i remember most of these classic 70`s publim information films like it was yesterday, my kids love charley, the tufty pifs and those awful green cross code films.

well worth the £6-99 price for nostalgia

 Informative and hilarious!

Charley Says features some of the greatest pieces of television ever made. Where I live Saturday mornings consisted of Tiswas and PIFS (the slots where ITV couldn't get advertising space so used these to fill the gaps as well). Disc one features all the Charley the cat films, all the Tufty films; Joe and Petunia are there and loads of other classic animated films. Also on disc one you have Donald Pleasance as the "Spirit of dark and Lonely Water", silly Jimmy who goes into a substation to get his frisby and gets fried by thousands of volts and "Snatch of the Day" (it's about pickpockets honestly).

Disc two is less impressive as it seems to feature quite a few films which are very similar to each other and are quite boring, but if you remember the "Driver Fatigue" advert and Derek Griffiths teaching us about Splink then these are on here too. The only other complaint I have with disc two is that the volume levels drop quite significantly on some of the films so don't be surprised if you have to crank up the volume on some of them.

These tiny complaints aside this is another classic release from Network Video. However there are still some great PIFs that haven't featured on either disc so here's hoping for volume three.
