Have been awaiting a DVD/video release for years, or a re-showing on TV.
Today is the 60th anniversary of VE day. WWII was one of the most horrible things to ever have happened on our planet; saying that Private Schultz is repulsive is akin to deriding Kelly's Heros, Hogan's Heros or the Germans episode of Fawlty Towers - and misses the point completely.
There's a big difference between making sick, cheap jokes about such events, and ultra-high quality comedy drama like these pieces.
I cannot wait to revel in it's pleasures once more. Surely 2005 will see a DVD release.
