Heroes of Comedy - Max Wall (2nd January 2003) [VHSRip (DivX)]
Profile of the comedian and music-hall entertainer who died in 1990.

A very good show with excellent clips of Max at his best.
Please note also that it's another TV programme which originates from a home VHS recording so not near modern day DVD quality.
Please also note, the sound level is very high on the continuity announcements before and at the closing of the programme, however it is o.k. during the actual show.
