Editorial Reviews

Derek Nimmo stars in the classic BBC comedy series as the well-meaning but accident-prone Brother Dominic. Joining in the mayhem at Mountacres Priory are the benign Prior, Father Anselm (Sir Felix Aylmer), who has his work cut out maintaining peace in the Priory, the long-suffering Master of Novices, Father Bernard (Colin Gordon), and the bumptious Father Matthew (Derek Francis) who finds it more difficult than anyone to endure daily monastic life with Brother Dominic. Now for the first time all eight surviving episodes of this classic comedy series are available in this special digitally re-mastered DVD collection.

Format: DVD
It has been well documented that the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) erased much of its videotape-era broadcast history as a cost saving measure for the purpose of reusing the tape. Unfortunately, "Oh Brother!" the 1968-70 BBC comedy series fell victim to this practice and, today, only eight of the 19 episodes originally produced survive. The surviving episodes include the series' very first episode (broadcast on September 13, 1968), as well as all seven episodes from the series' third and final season (or, for those in the UK, series three), which were originally broadcast in January and February of 1970. While the first episode is in black & white and exhibits a considerable amount of grain, the third season color episodes look markedly better, considering that they represent the videotape technology that was available in 1970.

As for the show itself, it's mildly funny and the comedic situations are helped greatly by an engaging ensemble cast led by Derek Nimmo as the bumbling Brother Dominic. Those looking for comedy aimed squarely at the institutions of the church and religion can look elsewhere; the humor here is gentle and is derived from the humorous, day-to-day situations of the fathers and brothers who live and work in the monastery.

This two DVD set from Koch Vision is bare bones; each DVD contains four half-hour episodes, presented in the order as they were originally broadcast. The only extra feature on this set is a photo gallery with both black & white and color photos at the end of disc 2, and the insert included contains a synopsis for each episode, as well as the original BBC broadcast date. I'm unclear as to whether or not "Oh Brother!" ever had a U.S.

This collection of programs is very entertaining and is a wonderful way to escape the everyday world of problems and politics that drives most of us to the edge of unhappiness. I only wish that the "lost" segements of this series could be miraculously discovered and made available to the public.
