New and Upcoming Releases

Vintage Beeb Comedy Favourites No: 9781445861517
Release date 6/10/11.

Released on 6th October, this is a box set of 10 CDs which were all previously available individually in the Vintage Beeb series.

As with the individual releases, this set contains facsimile vinyl-look CDs with original album sleeve notes. The following CDs are included: 'I'm Sorry I'll Read That Again', 'The Two Ronnies', 'Fawlty Towers', 'Fawlty Towers: Second Sitting', 'Hancock: The Lift & Twelve Angry Men', 'It's Morecambe & Wise', 'Frankie Howerd: Please Yourselves', 'The Best of Round the Horne', 'Round the Horne Vol.2' and 'Dad's Army'.

Sid’s Mystery Tours No: 1408470586
Release date 2/2/12

Due for release in February 2012 are the next batch of Vintage Beeb CDs. Releases currently planned are ‘To The Manor Born’, ‘The Two Ronnies Vol 2 (Me & Him)’, ‘Porridge’ and ‘Doctor Who Sound Effects’. The Hancock release is ‘Sid’s Mystery Tours’ so is expected to be a recreation of the original vinyl LP which also features ‘ The Poetry Society’. Hopefully this release will feature the original artwork and will also be without the opening and closing music as per the original.

Citizen James No: B0051GHTTS
Release Date 6/2/12

February is looking to be a great month with Acorn releasing a DVD of the 10 surviving episodes of Citizen James. No more details yet but it would be great if this were the first of many releases of archive BBC TV.
