A 2 CD and DVD pack that celebrates the best of George Formby, one of the biggest British entertainment stars of the 20th century.

The CD has 50 of his recordings. Digitally re-mastered, all the hits are included as well as many songs from his popular films.

The DVD: His last show televised in 1960, George combines performing his most famous songs with archive footage and surprisingly tells some home truths. Included also are clips from his contribution to the war efforts where his cheeky optimism and cheerful songs entertained the troops on the front line.

In Frank Skinner's recent BBC4 documentary he shows how Formby's influence and popularity continues in Britain today. In many schools throughout the country the traditional recorder has been replaced as the musical instrument to learn with the ukulele, the instrument George made famous.
