Videos Of The Week #29: Wiped Advert Pie

Shitting hell, shitting hell, SHITTING HELL! We're a week into December, already. Also... it's time to dive into another toilet of videos and try not to catch a horrible disease.

Let's do this.

This is now me again, really

We start with a programme originally made around 10 years ago, that explored the subject of classic TV shows that have been lost pretty much since their first broadcast and the quest to recover as many of them as possible. It's quite a fascinating insight into why so much TV history was wiped at the time, including some stories about how the likes of Monty Python's Flying Circus very nearly had its master tapes wiped and further tales on how some missing material has miraculously been found.

It's one of those subjects can is great cause for debate, but it is one which I find fascinating. I hope you enjoy...

She's cracked it, she's only cracked it

Time for a break... from 8th December 1985. Featuring Stephen Fry, Hugh Laurie, a fat Rabbit, a Tesco Value Del Boy, some shit aftershave and some plastic sausage rolls.

Note that even though this break is from December, there isn't much in the way of seasonal adverts. A very different landscape compared to now, when the bastards start appearing in late September.

I'm feeling like Delia Smith, right now

And finally, we re-visit our old friend Barry Lewis, as he attempts to get us into the Christmas spirit with a giant Mince Pie and as it turns out, it's not an easy task...

And that's your lot for this week. 

Sod off.
