A nostalgic collection of bygone comedy greats has been released on DVD – and we have four copies to give away.

The Golden Years Of British Comedy is a three-DVD set featuring performances from much-loved comics of the Forties, Fifties and Sixties, much of it rare.

Included are clips of Tommy Trinder, MaxMiller, Sandy Powell,Flanagan and Allen,Arthur Askey, Richard ‘Stinker’ Murdoch, ‘Monsewer’ Eddie Gray, George Formby, Sid Field,Will Hay and The Prime Minister of Mirth, George Robe – and that’s just the Forties disc.

The Fifties disc features the likes of Harry Worth, Peter Sellers, Mike and Bernie Winters, Max Wall, Hylda Baker, The Goons, Bob Monkhouse,Charlie Drake amd ‘Professor’ Jimmy Edwards.

And in the Sixties, the discs showcase the works of  Morecambe and Wise, Peter Cook and Dudley Moore,Tony Hancock, Benny Hill, Eric Sykes,  and The Frost Report.

The comedy is interspersed with interviews and comments from the likes of  Warren Mitchell, Harry Secombe, Michael Bentine, Max Bygraves and Beryl Reid.  

The set has been released by Universal, and to stand a chance of winning one of the four copies we have to give away, just answer the following question by July 4, , when the winners will be chose at random from all the correct answers received.
