Product Details

At Last the 1948 Show (3-disc DVD set)
Directed by Ian Fordyce

This ground-breaking, splendidly silly and surreal comedy sketch series, written and performed by John Cleese, Graham Chapman, Tim Brooke-Taylor and Marty Feldman, also starring the lovely Aimi MacDonald, was a major milestone on the road to Monty Python's Flying Circus, The Goodies and everything that came after. This lovingly curated new deluxe three-disc set restores all the existing episodes from both series of the programme in the correct order, and is as complete as is currently possible. It includes all ten surviving episodes, two almost completely reconstructed episodes, and the complete audio of a further episode with fragments of film restored; all drawn from the vaults of the BFI National Archive, and proudly presented alongside an array of newly-filmed and archive extras.

Special features

  • Includes all the complete surviving episodes from series one and two, plus two reconstructed episodes, for the very first time
  • Newly recorded interviews with Humphrey Barclay and Tim Brooke-Taylor (2019)
  • Archive interviews with John Cleese, Marty Feldman, Tim Brooke-Taylor and Aimi MacDonald
  • ***FIRST PRESSING ONLY*** fully illustrated booklet with new writing on the show by series expert Steve Bryant, not quite 400 words by Tim Brooke-Taylor and full credits
  • Other extras TBC
