A somewhat surprising release, considering some of the "classic" material which has been looked over, for this show, described by the BBC Comedy Guide as having "lacked spark". Also quite a rare outing for French and Saunders in something which they did not write or create. Still, surely of interest to some, and in a way encouraging that more obscure programmes are being released.
