Overview
SERIES ONE
Packed with over ten years of extras (well, nearly seven hours), this is the one fans have been waiting for, and everyone else has been dreading.

Like reality, only better, 'Big Train' was the much-imitated, never-surpassed sketch show from 'Father Ted' writers Graham Linehan and Arthur Mathews. Now, at last, fans can relive those chin-strainingly, chest-hurtingly funny encounters with mad scientists, herds of jockeys, firefighting show jumpers, sexy puppets, impatient hundred metre runners, surgeons with funny names, foul-mouthed nurses from the past and of course, the many contestants of World Championship Stare Out.

SERIES TWO
More sketches inspired by the weird, the oblique, the deadpan and the incorrigible stoicism of the Beefeater as we find tortoises speaking fluent French, mermaids cheating, smoking and swearing and flamenco dancers displaying an ability to defuse car bombs.
