Irreverent and undeniably hysterical, The Benny Hill Show pioneered a naughty new direction for the sketch-variety show, one that pushed the envelope of television standards and inspired such contemporaries as Saturday Night Live and MADtv. Still considered a hoot and a half today, Benny Hill and his talented ensemble were unafraid to take a "tongue-in-cheeky" approach in satirizing society's taboos, from bawdy ballads and priceless pantomimes to dizzying double entendres and slaphappy head slapping.

Benny's smirking antics, beautifully supported by his scantily-clad bevy of buxom babes, released a worldwide tidal wave of unrestrained laughter, winning The Benny Hill Show a hill...er, mountain of accolades, including the British Academy's Best Comedy Show Award and two Emmy® nominations!

THE NAUGHTY EARLY YEARS: SET ONE features all 11 uproarious episodes from 1969-1971, including three rare installments filmed in black-and-white!

Yet, beyond the familiar biblical accounts, shockingly little is known about the trial and crucifixion of Jesus. And many of the world's most distinguished biblical scholars insist that what the Bible has to say about the event cannot be correct.

    THE TRIAL OF JESUS visits the Holy Land, pores through some of the oldest writings on earth and pieces together circumstantial evidence and tantalizing clues looking for a clearer picture of Christ's final days. Reconstructing the events surrounding His fate, this thought-provoking special challenges many of the best-known stories--both old and new--surrounding this pivotal moment.
