Network is delighted to announce the release of THE BENNY HILL ANNUAL 1980 (12) on 18th February 2008, RRP £14.99.
Blending high speed farce with risqué jokes and quick fire sketches, the much loved Benny Hill and his hopeless helpers (Henry McGee, Bob Todd and Jack Wright) are back. In these 1980 specials, you can see Wonder-Gran take on Doctor Jackal and Mr Hide, the inept volunteers of the Lower Tidmarsh Fire Brigade, and The Lad Himself give his own unique take on The American Dream. Not to forget the return of the beautiful Hill's Angels! A critically acclaimed ratings smash, The Benny Hill Show became one of the most successful programmes on British television. Original, inventive and bursting with energy and a bawdy sense of humour, these Emmy nominated specials showcase the immeasurable talents of Hill as a comic performer and demonstrate why he became a household name before leading him to worldwide fame.
THE BENNY HILL ANNUAL 1980 (12) will appeal to all of those who enjoyed Network's previous BENNY HILL ANNUALS and those who enjoy classic British comedy. This DVD features three classic shows from 1980, available for the first time, complete and uncut and is released on the same day as THE BENNY HILL ANNUAL 1981.
