A Great Collection Of Grahams Work
While I was never around to see what all the fuss was about during his early appearances, I used to watch Blankety Blanks and then later his late night show with Kenny Sutcliffe. A character that was always a bit cheeky and got away with a lot on TV considering how restricted it was. Towards the 90's it was a bit more relaxed, but he was doing it in the 60's. Overall, the 9 discs include a fairly extensive range of highlights of his career. I'm sure a lot was lost from channel 9 due to incorrect storage of tapes (which is what happened to most of Paul Hogan's show).
