I wish I could have enjoyed this....

In the early 1960s, the comedy group consisting of Peter Cook, Alan Bennet, Jonathan Miller and Dudley Moore had a long-running stage show called "Beyond the Fringe". It's supposed to be a wonderful example of the sort of new British comedy that would become popular in the 1960s--a precursor to things like "Monty Python's Flying Circus". Fortunately, this performance was taped AND a copy was recently discovered--and is now on DVD. However, unfortunately for me there are no captions. Let me explain. I am hard of hearing and really like most of my films to be captioned. But if they aren't, they're best if they have excellent sound and accents I can easily follow. When I watched "Beyond the Fringe", it was a HUGE struggle, as the sound was only fair, there were no captions and the four person cast had thick British accents (and sometimes they put on accents that were even tougher for me to follow). About midway through the DVD, I simply turned it off, as I found I was missing too much. Should they ever bring out a captioned version, I'd be thrilled to try it again.
