Trivia

Most of "Not Only... But Also..." was erased by the BBC under their policy of wiping master videotapes (which at that time were expensive) for reuse. Only eight of the original twenty-two episodes survive complete. Peter Cook and Dudley Moore had offered to buy the BBC new tapes, but they were refused. Compilations use material from foreign networks' copies and remaining 16mm film inserts. See more »

What about the soapsuds?
8 May 2004 | by dblombergSee all my reviews

I agree with the other commentators about the significance of this show. I think it is a tragedy that the BBC was so funding poor that it had to re-use the videotapes! But what about Poet's Corner, when the cream of Brit comedy would have to sit in a dunking chair and versify without skipping a beat--or else! Yes, The Goons started it, and Monty Python completed it, but perhaps it was consummated in Yes, Minister! If only Americans could develop this sense of humour, the world would be a different place. (But some of my best friends are Americans.) (When I tried to post this, I was told I needed to provide at least ten lines in my comment, or else it would't be posted. Does that strike you as something that Pete and Dud, Spike, and the Pythons would have parodied?)
