An other little jem from the minds of Jimmy Perry and David Croft (Dad's Army, Hi-de-Hi, Oh, Doctor Beeching!). I recently bought the DVD "finally" released in Australia of the first series. Was very suprised to find extras - two lost episodes, apparantly junked by the BBC in the 70s, turned up as betamax copies from when it was shown on Channel 7 here in Australia. The episodes are not tidied, poor quality with colour wash out, screen jumps, obvious cuts (probebly beacuse sections were badly damaged) and original Channel 7 livery from when we come back from an ad break (Channel 7 logo "It 'Aint Half Hot Mum" PGR)
Very enjoyable, I vaugely remember watching this years ago. Great performances from Windsor Davis, Melvyn Hayes, "Little" Don Estalle etc.
