    Does anyone have either of these sitcoms?



    Kit Curran starred Denis "Wedge" Lawson and ran for two series in the mid eighties. I don't hold out any hope for an official dvd as I've never found anyone who has even heard of the show.



    Casanova 73 was a leslie phillips seventies comedy show which ran for one series. probably too politically incorrect to be repeated and no sign of it on dvd either.



    not sure how much I've got that is rare in terms of trading but if anyone has these dvds, I'll have a rummage and see what I can come up with.



    thanks

    anybody got this ? another that i vaguely remember !
    i think it went down like a lead balloon at the time and was replaced swiftly by a hitherto unknown gameshow called mastermind !
    i wonder if thats the first instance of a tv show being pulled off air due to unpopularity or being just a bit too racy for the times ?

    yes i am still interested mr hadleigh
    its took a long time to reply but i had given up on this thread and thought no one had it .

    i only returned to it because i stumbled on this today !
    its a link i found which features an episode with madeline smith .
    the first part i downloaded and watched but all subsequent parts i havent been able to see for some reason .

    the show doesnt seem that bad as its reputation suggests although perhaps it was too racey for 40 years ago ?

    talking of racey please be careful before exploring any other parts of that site
    i dont want any britmovie users to have a heart attack

    I'm not sure if such a mention is frowned upon on such an esteemed board as this, but there's a listing for Casanova 73 on iOffer that has the complete series for $18.00 (roughly �12.00). I don't know if this is any use to you? it does appear to be time coded though.

    i thought that madeline smith episode in the above link was sexist puerile drivel and in very bad taste .
    i loved every minute of it !
    so thank you poppy hopkins for alerting me to the complete series for sale

    ive just finished watching the complete series and it was great !

    leslie phillips is excellent in a part that is tailor made for him
    and there was genuine chemistry between him and his screen wife jan holden

    i dont understand why it was so controversial ?

    benny hill got away with chasing mini skirted dolly birds until the late 80s before the PC brigade eventually caught up with him so why was casanova 73 singled out fo criticism in the early 70s ?

    there was lots of other shows you could equally take offence at in those days
    love thy neighbour ?

    it would be great to see it given another airing
    it might find a new appreciative audience
