"Sad to say this dvd covers only a small section of Anna Russel's talent the first section is sadly a let down there are far better showings of Anna's talent than the ones selected the second section in colour is slightly better at least one gets to see her humour this section is far too short again they could have chosen a better segment of her send ups eg the ring cycle the last section the interview is a saving factor with this dvd still one must be thankful that you have a record of Anna's amazing talent inspite of the let downs it is still worth having"
Fun, but only for the already initiated

"if you have never seen or heard anna russell, this is not where to start. one MUST start with "anna russell explains the ring" (available on another of her dvds) but this compilation of television appearances from the early 60s is a terrific find for those previously acquainted with the work of the brilliant comedienne/singer, who punctures the pomposity of classical music while still offering"

"This DVD compilation was a big disappointment. It contains none of Anna's most famous pieces, e,g, The Ring, Hamlet or G & S, and a lot of the pieces which are contained are rather unfunny and dated."

"Hearing her is great, but when you see her.... For younger audiences, for French speaking like me, unique, really !"
