There are only a few episodes of ALT1948S on DVD. There are a few stray sketches on YouTube that aren't on the DVDs. But the episodes they managed to save are worth the price of the DVD.

I remember 'Professional Foul', Linz. I think it won Peter Barkworth the BAFTA c.1969 - like your friends, i have an ancient video of it. You can get them transferred to DVDs I'm told...? And it's supposed to be not that expensive?

Good luck.It was one classy piece of TV.

I found out where Maverick is showing on American telly. It's on the Encore western channel. It came on at 9 am this morning (California time.) It may play other times too. Watched it - a chortlingly good show!

P.S. There was another episode on this evening featuring a very young Clint Eastwood (before he learned to act.) It's amazing how well the show holds up after almost 50 years thanks to the Garner charm and to some very sophisticated writing for that era of tv.

Northern Exposure...I wore black for a week when it was canceled. I have one Fry and Laurie DVD--the sketch involving the table side chicken preparation was a scream. We have an independent station that runs "Star Trek" and other good stuff from '60's and '70's.

1. another vote here for Northern Exposure

2. The Odd Couple. Did the Odd Couple (Jack Klugman, Tony Randall) ever play in the UK? GOSH I loved that show. I'm afraid I subscribe to the Oscar Madison school of housekeeping.

How could I ever forget?! My favourite all-time-ever sitcom "The Likely Lads" and its successors.
Does an other Brit Palin remember this with the affection I do? (Maybe you had to be there, in the north-east, at the time.I'm told it uswed to empty the pubs on transmission night.)
By the Cringe!
