Synopsis:
From 1968 to 1970 the BBC's comedy series "Oh Brother!", which starred Derek Nimmo as the well-meaning but accident-prone Brother Dominic, regularly entertained over twelve million viewers. Joining in the mayhem at Mountacres Priory are the benign Prior, Father Anselm, who has his work cut out maintaining peace in the Priory (Sir Felix Aylmer), the long-suffering Master of Novices, Father Bernard (Colin Gordon), and later in the series the bumptious Father Matthew (Derek Francis) who finds it more difficult than anyone to endure daily monastic life with Brother Dominic.
Now for the first time all eight surviving episodes of this classic comedy series are available in this special digitally remastered video collection. Hilarious highlights include: the opening episode from September 1968 entitled 'The Voice of the Turtle', in which the Fathers attempt to withdraw Dominic from the choir; the unexpected arrival of the lenient Bishop Collins in 'By the Fleshpots'; Dominic's appearance on Late Night Review and subsequent trip to Rome in 'A Fool Returneth'; his strict supervision of a vow of abstinence in 'A Stone for Stumbling'; and attempts to find an Auntie for Father Matthew in the memorable final episode 'The Fullness of His Days'.
