They could show them and have a discussion about sensitive issues as a compromise...some of the old shows were naive but had such funny stuff as well...laughter is something we need in this world.

Better make some food, thanks for the great memories DAAAAAD

Apparently he was also a Meccano expert. That's sooo going to mean nothing to lots of people on here.

Who else remembers the Dick Emery show set in the WW2 prison camp? I thought that was the funniest thing ever when I was 10 (or thereabouts).

It's only a matter of time before there's a thread about Benny Hill (and his Angels) and Danny La Rue.

I am really laughing just thinking about them.
You can rent Dick Emery videos from the Continental shop on Wilshire/17th in Santa Monica. He's got some really old British videos in there

For those in the US with a multi region player or one that can easily be hacked such as the Cyberhome 300. I have one and it works great
