    Tomkinson's Schooldays:
    Set in the frontier days of British education, when upper lips were stiff with cold and corporal punishment was an A-level. A savage, searing indictment of something or other.

    The Testing Of Eric Olthwaite:
    A boy becomes a man in the harsh world of the Depression. The rough tough story of folk who couldn't afford to go on the Jarrow March.

    Escape from Stalag Luft 112B:
    A tale of courage and valour behind the lines in the Kaiser's Germany. An inspiring story of camp life and a British officer who wouldn't lie down.

    Murder At Moorstones Manor:
    Hugo and Dora drive down to see Mumsie and Dadsi-pie for a long weekend in the country. But it turns out to be longer than they thought.

    Across The Andes By Frog:
    The stirring story of one man and six frogs who tried to defy the world in the greatest gamble of all.

    The Curse Of The Claw:

    The terrifying story of a man who dabbled in the dark mysteries of the Orient, and lived to tell the tale. Or did he...?

    Whinfrey's Last Case:
    Dashing, debonnaire Gerald Whinfrey saves his country twice a week. But in 1913 a German plot to start the First World War without telling anybody coincides with his holiday. Where do Whinfrey's priorities lie? Has he got any? A knockabout tale of international intrigue.

    Golden Gordon:
    A torrid tale of football fanaticism in the 1930s. Super-fan Gordon Ottershaw supports a team which hasn't won a match for six years. But worse is to come and Gordon and his bicycle clips re-united in a last desperate bid for glory and Bovril.

    Roger of the Raj:
    Roger Bartlesham comes of age in a world of eighteen-course breakfasts and twelve servants per leg. But when the Great War breaks out Roger finds himself in a world of changing values and is forced by circumstances to the most despicable act know to the British Army.

    Just received an e-mail from Network and one of their deals in the Best of British promotion is the set above at a new lower price of £7.34

    If you are a fan of the work by the various Monty Python stars and enjoy that type of humour then this is an excellent set at an excellent price
