Max von Sydow,
I managed to see most of the shows via an American contact - copies of the VHS tapes (on DVD) - I would love for the Studio to recapture these. The shows are excellent - professional in terms of the sketches, the interviews and the singing. The pilot episode, consisting of Julie Andrews and the "regulars" is excellent, but then again I am biased (being a Julie Andrews fan). The show extends her range - and shows with some of the Big Band stars and rock stars of the time (Sammy Davis, Henry Belafonte, Mamma Cass Eliot, to name some) are excellent. Brilliant singing, choreography and acting - Julie Andrews herself is on record of saying that TV was hard work, and the hard work is evident in the series - although she makes it look so easy. It's a brilliant series, which must be made available....
