Gurney Slade, 1960

POSTED: August 17, 2021

A conversation with my brother reminded me of the television series The Strange World of Gurney Slade, which I have never seen, although always wanted to.

For those of you who don’t know, Wikipedia says that “The Strange World of Gurney Slade is a surreal six-part British television comedy series devised by Anthony Newley and made by ATV, first transmitted by the ITV network between 22 October and 26 November 1960. Newley devised the central concept of the show, whereas the series was written in its entirety by Sid Green and Dick Hills.”.

A few moments on Amazon showed me, to my surprise, that I can purchase the complete series of six episodes on DVD for 7.95.

I will add that to my Christmas list then.
