Pauline's Quirkes - The Complete Series
Pauline's Quirkes, a light-hearted, provocative magazine-style show for teenagers, provided an early showcase for the talents of one of Britain's best-loved stars. After playing a leading role in Thames's You Must Be Joking!, the 16-year-old Pauline took centre-stage in this teatime spin-off series, presenting a lively mix of comedy sketches, music and features.
Teen pop idols Flintlock provided the songs while unleashing outbreaks of hysteria among the studio audience, and Pauline's co-presenters included her future Birds Of A Feather co-star Linda Robson. Irreverent, often surprisingly risqué humour (usually at the expense of the Flintlock boys) and discussion of the pressing issues of the day (should boys be allowed to wear skirts to school?) raised eyebrows and blazed a trail for a new kind of show aimed at teenage audiences. This set contains the complete series, also featuring DJs Mike Read and Steve Wright, and master magician Ali Bongo.

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.
