Did You Know?


It was filmed in 1982 but wasn't broadcast because of the Falklands War. After the war the BBC kept it under wraps until a satellite TV station (UK Gold) broadcast the series in 1993. It was finally given an airing on UK terrestrial television (BBC2) 18 years after it was made, in 2000. See more »

Frankie Howerd Classic
17 July 2009 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I am a big fan of Frankie Howerd and unlike the previous reviewer I found this very funny. I am not usually an admirer of anything connected to war, I don't even like "Dads Army", but I feel that Frankie carried this comedy off perfectly. "Up Pompeii" is one of the comedy classics of all time and in this all to short comedy series he adopts the same "talk to the audience" approach which is every bit as effective. The writing is good and the situations are amusing. I am just sorry that more were not made.

I had not really heard much about this series for many years and so was pleased to find that it had at last been released on DVD. Negative comments and reviews had made me imagine that it was poor-but I was pleasantly surprised when I watched it through.
