Frost On Sunday
One of the triumvirate of Frost programmes that dominated ITV weekends in the late 1960s and early '70s, Frost On Sunday concerned itself with the lighter end of the entertainment spectrum.
Made at a time when David Frost was hosting a chat show in the US and then jetting back to the UK to do three shows over the weekend, Frost On Sunday concentrates this energy into fifty minutes worth of light entertainment featuring numerous sketches from Ronnie Corbett, Ronnie Barker - who won a BAFTA for best Light Entertainment Performance - and Josephine Tewson (the latter two fresh from their stint on Hark At Barker).
A number of editions of Frost On Sunday no longer exist - this set includes every existing episode, including the first show from 1968, which was the subect of a technical strike and so has no on-screen credits.
The rest of the shows come from the second series in 1970, including the edition on 8th March 1970 where the team decamped from their Wembley studios to the London Palladium to present that year's British Film and Television Awards. Though this episode only exists in a slightly edited format, the special show features Laurence Olivier, Morecambe and Wise, Marty Feldman and John Alderton with the Fenn Street Gang (in character!).

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.
