Great documentary
26 January 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I was lucky enough to go to the 40th anniversary at pinewood studios in 1998 and seeing some of the footage included in this documentary made it a joy to watch, i am even in it for a few seconds :) Some great interviews with the remaining stars and they pack a lot into it, it was a very fitting tribute to the carry on team

There's plenty of footage of Sid James, Kenneth Williams, Hattie Jacques, Barbara Windsor, Terry Scott, Joan Sims, Jim Dale, Bernard Bresslaw and Charles Hawtrey as well as Frankie Howerd, Jack Douglas, Peter Butterworth and Kenneth Connor, it is a must see and is included in the UK DVD special edition of carry on Emmannuel
