Previously available on DVD, the ground-breaking 1960 series starred singer and actor Newley as an actor who breaks free from his mundane life in search of something more interesting – usually from his own imagination.

Newly created, while Sid Green and Dick Hills wrote, just one six-episode series of the fourth-wall-breaking comedy was produced.

Marking its 60th anniversary today (22nd October 2020), the distributor Network has announced a three-disc limited edition Blu-ray box set.

This contains a new restoration of the series from its original 35mm film elements, alongside a host of extras.

 

 

 

They explain: “This brilliantly inventive and startlingly surreal comedy was unlike anything previously seen on television.

The audiences were flabbergasted to see this star on the rise in such an experimental series that deconstructed the fledgling sitcom genre.

Also, it provided a platform for Newley’s unique stream of consciousness.

Also, of the program, they say: “The series saw Anthony Newley star as an actor who walks off the set of a banal sitcom and into a fantasy world of his own imagination.

Talking to dogs, rocks, and fairies and dancing with vacuum cleaners it is an unpredictable, absurdist fantasy.

The series features British stalwarts including Una Stubbs, Anneke Wills, Geoffrey Palmer, and Bernie Winters.”

The new three-disc Blu-ray set includes remasters of all six episodes; a booklet about the series with contributions from a triumvirate of television historians.

Furthermore, three episodes of Saturday Spectacular starring Newley alongside the likes of Peter Sellers and Shirley Bassey.

Pre-orders are now being taken ahead of a 30th November release date, exclusively through Network’s own store.

All include instant-access to watch the series through the company’s own streaming platform, Network On Air, which launched in the summer.
