"Do Not Adjust Your Set", a madcap sketch show with a cult following, was a huge influence on television comedy. Written by and starring Michael Palin, Terry Jones, Eric Idle, with performances and additional material from David Jason and Denise Coffey, it also provided a showcase for Terry Gilliam's animations and the musical antics of art-school jazz-anarchists The Bonzo Dog Doo-Dah Band. This collection brings together all the existing shows from the Rediffusion and Thames series for the first time. Among the five episodes entirely new to video, two were previously thought lost entirely.
