Synopsis:
Join outrageously funny Scottish comedian Stanley Baxter in the second of two releases showcasing his BAFTA-nominated comedy output for LWT in the 70's and 80's. Baxter is fondly remembered for his risqué humour (he scandalised Mary Whitehouse) and his wickedly funny impressions (he was the first person ever to do an impersonation of the Queen on television). This second release comprises both half-hour series that he did for ITV in the 1970's and early 1980's.

The Stanley Baxter Picture Show (1972)
Stanley's first work for ITV was a roaring success and led directly into his hour-long "Spectaculars". This four-show series had the audiences roaring with laughter at wicked impersonations such as "Malcolm Gibberidge Talking to Ethel Herman", "John Bitumen's Britain" and "Ken Rissole's The Musex Lovers".
The Stanley Baxter Series (1981)
Taking a break from his successful run of 'specials', Stanley once again delved into the half-hour format. This six-show series gave us such gems as "The Antique People Show", "the DAFTA Awards", a spoof on holiday programmes and "Babes in Balham".
