Please note this is a region 2 DVD and will require a region 2 (Europe) or region Free DVD Player in order to play Although Britain has changed almost beyond recognition since Some Mothers Do &39;Ave &39;Em was first broadcast in the early 1970s the show&39;s simple slapstick humour has an ageless quality that makes it enduringly hilarious Michael Crawford found fame as Frank Spencer still probably television&39;s most accident-prone man and still Britain&39;s most mimicked sitcom character having inspired thousands of wannabe entertainers to don black berets and Humphrey Bogart-style rain coats and feebly exclaim "Mmm Betty!" Crawford&39;s great insight was to portray Frank as both a figure of fun and an endearingly sympathetic character we laugh at him but never cease liking him and we always admire his plucky never-say-die spirit Most of the episodes share the common theme of Frank attempting to find a job (ranging from a holiday camp entertainer to an RAF cadet) but because of his clumsy demeanour and lack of common sense losing the positions within a matter of hours Pitted against a variety of middle-aged male professionals (his GP a psychiatrist and a public relations consultant for example) Spencer&39;s stupidity reduces these "experts" to nervous wrecks His long-suffering doting wife Betty (Michelle Dotrice) features throughout but despite his wild behaviour and idiocy she appears only mildly flustered by her husband&39;s actions On the DVD Some Mothers Do &39;Ave &39;Em was one of the first comedy series to be recorded by the BBC in colour but the sound and vision of the episodes transfer perfectly satisfactorily to DVD format At times the production values of some of the episodes are decidedly ropey (watch out for stray boom microphones and the skewed opening and closing credit) Apart from the episode and scene selection menus which incorporate sound extracts from the show no extras are included --John Galilee --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title This DVD boxset contains the three Christmas specials broadcast in 1974 1975 and 1978 Episodes are Jessica&39;s First Christmas Learning to Drive Learning to Fly
