The Stanley Baxter Collection
Enjoy classic comedy with this DVD showcasing the outrageously funny Scottish comedian Stanley Baxter. Baxter, who - like Ronnie Barker - went into self-imposed retirement in the late 1980s, is fondly remembered for his risqué humour (he was an enemy of puritanical watchdog, Mary Whitehouse) and his wickedly funny impressions (he was the first person ever to do an impersonation of the Queen on television).
This first release concentrates on the one-hour specials he produced for ITV in the 1970s and early 1980s, which won numerous awards including several BAFTAs.

1. The Stanley Baxter Big Picture Show (21/12/73)

If ordering from a UK store, please note that you are in Region 1 (DVD)/Region A (Blu-ray), whilst the UK is in Region 2/B, respectively. This means that many - but by no means all - may fail to play. Look for products marked "Region free", "All regions", "Region 0" or "Multi-region". Blu-rays may also be marked "Region A/B/C", or variations thereof. You may also check whether your DVD/Blu-ray player supports multi-region playback (also referred to as "region free"), or whether it can be set to do so. There should, of course, be no problems with books, CDs, or other physical items.
