Also, there are some rare archive bonus items, including: Curiouser and Curiouser, an anthology of Anglo-American humor featuring Peter Sellers and Spike Milligan; a recording of the cast rehearsal of ‘The Nasty Affair at the Burami Oasis’; and a PDF booklet of the bonus content which came with the original CD edition.
