A staple genre on ITV from its early days and much loved by the viewing public, light entertainment shows transcended class, religion and age - their joyous mix of comedy, variety and music firmly establishing them as undeniable highlights of the weekly TV schedule. A producer of key shows across the ITV Network from the mid 1950s, ABC Television was perfectly placed to create both popular series and ratings hit specials - and this release contains four of their light entertainment shows from the 1960s:
Sammy Davis Jr Meets The British (1960)

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", "Region free", 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.
