I used to enjoy watching The Benny Hill Show. This set contains Benny Hill shows from 1969 to 1989.
There are three volumes in the set. Each volume contains six disks.
Volume 1: 1969 to 1974 - 21 episodes.
Volume 2: 1975 to 1981 - 20 episodes.
Volume 3: 1982 to 1989 - 17 episodes.
There is a rather spartan booklet (one sheet, quad-folded) in the first volume that lists the tracks for all eighteen disks. It lists skit titles for each show, but it does not give production information or dates.
When you insert a disk, you must endure: the FBI warning, a plug for A&E Home Video (quite loud!), a plug for Fremantle Media, and clips of shows--all before the main menu appears (about one minute and fifteen seconds). You cannot circumvent this.
The main menu for each disk lists only the numbers 1, 2, 3, and 4 (for the shows on that disk). There is no alternate audio and no captions--open or closed. There is no option to play an entire disk.
When you select a show and press Play, you get a list of tracks within that show. If you press Play again, it plays the entire show. If you select a specific track, it plays from that point to the end of the show. Playback stops after each show and displays the main menu again.
The disks played equally well in a component DVD player or the DVD drive of a computer (using WinDVD).
The video and sound quality are very good to excellent. I did not try all the disks, but the ones I tried played well.

A gift for my father-in-law, who lives with us. He's spent HOURS in his room laughing his tail off at these old shows. THAT'S the picture of a successful gift.

The films of the shows I've viewed so far generally were very good duplicates. The sound is sharp and well defined on the shows that I watched. Very clean films that were not remastered, but the ones I've played, so far, look good on a 65-inch TV. Keep in mind that they were not wide-screen, but the old, narrow TV format, so, to avoid veiwing distortion, set your wide-screen TV for narrow screen (1.33 to 1) with grayed out vertical bars on the sides.

The only negative of "Benny Hill" is that his absurd humor is addictive. Once I started watching, everything planned for the evening was dumped, since I couldn't stop watching this superbly executed humor.

An added plus were his female trio singing those ancient songs that us older viewers enjoyed. They do it well, one per show, apparently.

Just funny! My 8 year old grandson and his 79 year old grand pop were watching together and were hysterical. Bonding experience that crossed the generation gap.

I'm a big fan of Benny Hill and could not wait to watch 48hrs of him! What you get is six hours repeated eight times, the gags get more refined the sets more elaborate but basically the shows just repeat with a small amount of different material thrown in so your not totally bored. The set is packed six dvd's into three cases for a total of eighteen dvd's, for the set I received this caused damage to the innermost tracks so I wasn't able to watch some bonus material or look at the trivia, but it really did not bother me because what I did see of the ' bonus hill's angel's interviews' these also were repeats of the same theme, I had wanted bonus footage of the show and all I got was filler. By the time I got to the damage it was too late to return, and I just could not be bothered, it not like i'm going to miss anything. Amazon was great, shipped promptly, arrived a day early, packed well enough and I was happy with the price of thirty eight dollars, had I paid the one hundred seventeen I would have felt ripped off . My memory had me belly laughing, the dvd's just had me smiling, oh, for the simple times, the humour is simple, unsophisticated and just what you need sometimes, I guess I am at that jaded stage of life on my way to crotchety.

What can I say. I am so happy i bought this. This is THE Benny Hill collection to get. to get any other you would be doing yourself an injustice. I remember watching Benny Hill on channel 13 in NYC years ago but i obviously missed alot or american tv cut alot. From the first disc to the last i was rolling on the floor laughing my butt off. You will get all the Hills from beginning to end plus the extras are spectacular. the audio video is top notch. I could go on and on about this but trust me,if you like Benny Hill then you must get this.Outstanding,worth every penny or pound.

This entire collection is superior. From way back when, thanks Fremantle and Thames. The Ladybirds are a hit here and of course, Benny could also sing in that comic way. Benny could do it all. The wigs on him are a must see!
