Like peas in a pod DVD
Bowler Dessert's third DVD features more classic events in the company of the Sons of the Desert.
UK Convention 2005 (9 minutes)
The fun and laughter enjoyed by Sons of the Desert at their 26th UK Convention in Bournemouth are captured, including the games on the beach, the cinema show, the dealers' tables, the fancy dress parade, the trip by boat and steam train, some communal singing and, above all, the conviviality.
Laurel and HarDay 2004 (9 minutes)
The Bacon Grabbers Tent's annual event in Wigan is like a whole convention crammed into one day. The 2004 gathering had the usual attractions such as the charity auction and the Kneesie-Earsie-Nosey World Championship. But a special event featured Anne Robinson (or was it a lookalike?) interrogating and reproaching some Grand Sheiks in The Missing Link. Witness Anne's venomous chastisements and squirm for the poor victims.
Ulverston Carnival 2005 (4 minutes)
The annual Ulverston Carnival has become a regular event in the calendar of many Sons of the Desert, who congregate in the town of Stan Laurel's birth. The Sons join in the fun by parading through the town in a fashion befitting Stan and Ollie themselves.
Ulverston at Christmas 2004 (6 minutes)
A Dickensian festival provided a Yuletide break and a flea circus proved a popular act. Chestnuts, antiques and street entertainers all added to the charm.
