Rowan Atkinson, Mel Smith, Pamela Stephenson and Griff Rhys Jones star in Not the Nine O'Clock News: Memory Kinda Lingers (Vintage Beeb) featuring sketches from the groundbreaking BBC TV series plus the live Drury Lane Theatre show Not in Front of the Audience.
Not the Nine O'Clock News is one of the great classics of British television comedy, with co-writers including Richard Curtis, John Lloyd, Andy Hamilton, Guy Jenkin, Colin Bostock-Smith, and Howard Goodall. Politicians, entertainers, world powers, members of the Royal Family, pop stars, and even Barry Manilow fans were all fair game in this wickedly funny satirical sketch series. Highlights include "McEnroe's Breakfast", "Game for a Laugh", "Question Time", "The Return of Constable Savage", and musical manglings including "Bloody Typical", "Nice Video (Shame About the Song)", "The Two Ninnies Song", and the mini-musical Laker!
