Marty was an excellent comedy programme, but for some reason largely forgotten more than 30 years after it was first broadcast.
The programme ran for 2 series in 1968 and 1969, and was one of the first to be made in colour, after the launch of colour TV in the UK on 1 July 1967. Unfortunately the recordings of 7 of the 15 programmes made have been lost.
My favourite sketches have to be The Stunt Man Goes On Holiday (when was the last time you saw visual humour of this quality?), or the Bishop on a Train sketch.
No doubt there are all sorts of rights issues preventing it, but a DVD re-issue of what's left of Marty would be most welcome.
