In 1971, Ronnie Barker and Ronnie Corbett teamed up for their first BBC series, a comedy show that would run for 16 years and become part of British television history. The two comedians. although never previously a double-act, complemented each other perfectly in appearance and style and their material, written by some of the top comic writers of the era, rarely failed to raise a smile and reduced many to hysterics.

The structure of each show, framed by the pair reading spoof news items, soon became familiar to the millions of viewers. Every episode might include party, doctor or other situation sketches, mock-adventure serials, regular musical guests, Ronnie Barker's magnificent word-play speeches, a rambling monologue from Ronnie Corbett, guest cabaret acts and a musical extravaganza finale. Each part savoured by audiences that would average around 17 million at the show's peak.

The first series was broadcast in 1971. Among the many highlights of the eight episodes were the 'Bald Man at a Party' sketch, a sequel to the famous 'Class' sketch with John Cleese, the period drama mini-series 'Hampton Wick', Ronnie Barker's 'Appeal on Behalf of the Very Clumsy' and musical appearances from Big Jim Jehosophat and Fat-Belly Jones.

 A Bit Of A Let Down

| | See all Caleaus's reviews (8)

This is not exactly what you'd expect from the Two Ronnies. Although a great opportunity to have the entire First Series on DVD it's not brilliant. The odd sketch that actually appears aren't too bad however only around half of these earlier programs actually involve sketches. The variety acts are a bit too frequent and lack the quality expected in future programs. The only thing that does it justice is the News readings at start and finish (which are still as good as later shows) and the musical extravaganza at the end. All in all I'd say OK but not amazing I'd stick to later series.

 excellent comedy.

very,very enjoyable.hard to realise just how old this is,and that its their very first series.sure,some of it is hit and miss, but the hits outweigh the misses. the only downside,which had me reaching for the fast forward button, was the truly awful appearances of tina charles and new world.
but, still worth getting.

 The start of one of the best comedy duos in history

It is amazing to see much of the format already in place at this early stage. And great to be able to buy whole series in one go, rather than some editor's idea of the best bits (which even if they do match with your selection, you have seen plenty of times) Don't go expecting the consistancy of the later series, but it's still very entertaining

 Classic 70's comedy

This is a must for all fans, as this is the first time that the unedited versions of the shows have been avaliable tobuy. To that end, you not only get the sketches, but in this first series, all the variety acts which interspersed them. This is a great look at how the bbc thought a variety show should look, thank god the two ronnies changed it!!

If you are a fan, or wish to view a lot of material not avaliable anywhere else, get this
