Forces TV are trailing "Please Sir!, although there wasn't any clips from B/W series 1, so maybe they are missing that one out.

TPTV showing a 'Music for Murder' 1965 from No Hiding Place .. June 25 & June 27 evenings.

Amazingly has got subtitles

Looks like a one-off showing but obviously if there is enough interest they might dust the cobwebs off a few more?

Not an expert but I think there are about 20 complete ones out of the original 200 + and this one may be a recent discovery?
However assuming they are export copies even these may not be complete in the sense of a UK transmission and may have had local censor cuts or cut to fit a certain time slot , but then again maybe not?

There are a few others that are incomplete.

But...that clashes with "Please Sir! on Forces TV, who thankfully are also showing "Bless This House".

What's CCX...?

They are certainly coming up with some great TV to add to the schedule.

ITV4 have further showings of "Robin Of Sherwood" and "Dempsey And Makepeace" coming up.

There is some classic TV on London Live. It is only available on Freeview and VirginMedia in London but can be manually added to Sky boxes.

Patrick Troughton once said, it was one of the happiest shows he'd done.

Watching "Please Sir!, on Forces TV earlier tonight, and rather oddly, they have edited the titles of the episode "A Very Nasty Outbreak".

They have stuck the opening seconds of one of the first two final series episodes on it ( crediting John Alderton ) this is to hide the fact that the episode bears the title "The Best Of Please Sir!", perhaps they think it would be more confusing than a John Alderton credit, when he's not in it.

I'm not too familiar with 'Please Sir', it all seems so long ago.
Surely ''The Best of Please Sir' is an artefact of broadcasting from commercial DVDs?

More likely the digital master made for the DVD than the actual DVD. I may have been easier to send that than a broadcast master, or maybe as usual it was send whatever was at hand at the time.

Not in this case though, one or two episodes of series 4 have the title "The Best Of Please Sir!", which came from a repeat showing, back in the 70's, why they used an altered title sequence I don't know, seems to be a lot of trouble.

Not even sure why these episodes only exist in this form either, but I taped the series when shown on Granada Plus, before any commercial releases, and the "Best Of" titles were present.

Also of interest, I was watching the episode "David And Goliath" tonight, which ends with a scene of Brown threatening Dix with a rifle ( not loaded) in the staff room. leading to the unpleasant Dix character leaving.

When G+ originally showed the episode ( around the time of the horrific Dunblane incident) the bulk of the rifle scene was edited out, and replaced with a caption reading: '2 minutes later' ( or '60 seconds later', one or the other).

Could 'The Best of Please Sir' have been a repeat strand?
Possibly to enable out-of-order episodes to be repeated, rather than give the impression of a series repeat?

That is indeed what it was, but why does a couple of them survive, seemingly as the master copies?
