    The release date is 8/21/01.

    I have always found this quite amazing. Benny Hill was huge in the UK, until the 80's. Then he vanished. His popularity in the states has grown and grown. His progammes aren't shown here anymore, but he has been recognised as a comedy "genius" as it were. I think the public grew tired of him in the UK. It's a shame he never lived to see the adulation he apparently always hated. it might have changed his mind about fame, but that's another story..
