If you think the world is round then forget this.
8 June 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

it's wonderful when it was last on TV about 600 years ago, the TV times said "if you think the world is round then don't bother watching this" that sums it up, it's absurd and very funny for example - jonathan miller is his son, he steals speak your weight machines and retunes them to different notes so he can get them to play a symphony julia foster is his daughter who thinks her arms are too long after watching the monkeys too much at the zoo. peggy mount is the neighbour who they pay to come and eat up all the left over food. eric sykes is building a copy of the old bailey in the living room - after that it gets mad. Come on TV companies - it's about time we saw it again.
