Some revies on the website of Amazon.com:

A great compilation dvd featuring black and white and colour footage from the archives of various European tv stations. Most of their well known hits are included at least once and there are a few more songs besides. Highlights include eight tracks performed completely live on the German show “Beat Beat Beat”, lip-synch performances from “Top of the Pops” and Blue Peter” and a full colour clip at The Playboy Paradise. This is highly recommended viewing for all 1960s pop pickers and great value for money. My only gripe is that “Okay” is not one of the hits included on the dvd.

All the below is based on my unreliable memory so please do not sue!
Dave Dee – Great singer/ex-PC cadet who saved Eddie Cochran’s guitar from looters/now a magistrate
Dozy – Good bassist/amazing bass vocal – for my money the best ever in UK pop
Beaky – The John Lennon of the band/multi-instrumentalist/brilliant vocal/funny (backed by Dozy usually)/attitude (years before punk)/star of the show for me /retired from music now – living in Spain
Mick – Great drummer/looked best in a beard (sorry Mick) retired from music now – living back in Salisbury
Tich – Great lead guitar/voted best/jammed with Jimi/great backing vocalist
OK – the songs/legends/hearsay – Bend It – done at playboy – love the dance – Xanadu – Dave took a chunk out of Dozy’s cheek with his whip! – see the scar! Run, Dozy, run! (copyright Janet & John cf Terry Wogan) – Last Night in Soho – Beaky and Dozy larking – dodgy editing leading to first x-cert video! – Tonight/Today – I’d love to see it live!
As a whole absolutely the best ever dvd of a band – all the songs (except Mr President – but I don’t think there is a video recording of that) – funnier than the Beatles – more attitude than the Stones – what more could you want?

The second Dutch DVD (Legend Of Xanadu), released in 2005 by BR Music/Universal  was also very interesting. Some video’s were already shown on the first DVD but lots of new stuff on it also. *)=New
