2017 Academy Award nominations: The snubs, surprises and what happened to Scorsese?

The Benny Hill Show and Rumpole of the Bailey

Rude, raunchy and very, very silly, "The Benny Hill Show" gave many Americans their first taste of British TV comedy, and "Benny Hill: The Complete Megaset: The Thames Years 1969-89" delivers exactly what the title promises, nearly 600 sketches on 18 DVDs. Another iconic Brit, Leo McKern, tackles what became his signature role as Horace Rumpole in the long-running legal drama "Rumpole of the Bailey," now available complete in a 14-DVD megaset.
