"Men of the World" has never been available on commercially released VHS or DVD. With so many older TV shows now finding their way onto DVD, we think it's time that this sometimes tender sitcom, starring David Threlfall and John Simm, both of whom have gone on to become internationally recognised actors since 1995, is made available to a wider audience.
Lenny Smart and Kendle Bains are flatmates and work together as travel agents in Manchester. Thirtysomething Lenny attempts, with the help of old friend Gilby, to turn sensitive 23-year-old Kendle into a "real man". In one episode, Kendle receives a telescope for a birthday present and subsequently ends up looking into all the windows opposite, Gilby, Becky and her friends end up fighting over what to look at.
