    I believe they have one of the great mans films on every Sunday for the next few weeks. Shame about the adverts though.

    Never mind those infernal ads.
    Just buy the 12-disc box set of his 12 best films from Amazon. For �20 :

    Trouble in Store/Up in the World
    The Square Peg/Follow a Star
    On the Beat/Man of the Moment
    The Bulldog Breed/One Good Turn
    A Stitch in Time/Just My Luck
    The Early Bird/Press for Time

    The best of these are still fabulous and ample evidence of the lasing legacy that his work richly deserves.
    There will never be anyone close to Norman Wisdom for the depth of his talent whether singing, playing the drums or saxophone, comedic acrobatic work and his madcap persona and his energy and dedication to his craft.

    Yes the boxset is excellent and surprisingly low priced.

    Just finished watching it. Still superb after all these years and "Dont Laugh at Me" even now brings a tear to the eye.

    The box set is wonderful, great value. Still very funny after all these years, he was the modern Chaplin. Brilliant!!

    When my son was no more than three years old he laughed and laughed at a NW film that was on TV, the humour just really worked for him and he's still a fan now twenty years later. We watched the film together yesterday.

    Most of Norman's comedy is timeless, just like Chaplin. Kids always loved him.

    I was only about seven years old but I clearly remember going to see Trouble in Store. My father had read the reviews about Wisdom being a great new comic and the whole family trooped off to see it. I saw every following film up to Press for Time - apart from The Girl on the Boat which I don't think had such a wide release.
