Book Description

25 Oct 2001 Last of the Summer Wine
A tribute to the long-running sit-com "Last of the Summer Wine". The book contains interviews with the show's major stars: "The Winos" - Compo, Cleggy and Foggy; "The Stronger Sex" - the battleaxe women, including Kathy Staff who turned the character of Nora Batty into a national icon; and "The Henpecked" - the husbands finally get a chance to have their say. The "Irregular Tipplers" recalls the numerous guest stars that have featured over the years, from John Cleese and Mathew Kelly, to Norman Wisdom and Kate Robbins. There is a guide to every single show since 1973 and archive photographs provides a nostalgic trip down memory lane.

5.0 out of 5 stars Summer Wine 25 Nov 2009
An excellent product.
This gives the full 30years of the program in detail including a synopsis of each show.
Not only does it give the life history of the main characters but also of the actors who appeared in it occasionally,
A treasure for anyone who loves the show that is still running.
I would like to see a further book on the same lines detailing the happenings from 2001 to the present time

For followers of this programme it is an excellent book, sadly many of the characters have now passed away. But this book ensures the memories live on.

3.0 out of 5 stars I'm confused about what edition this is. 10 April 2008
By Book Witch - Published on
I own a 2nd revised edition dated 2001, titled 30 Years of Last of the Summer Wine. I am confused about this 2nd revised edition dated 2007. The covers are different in that the "30 Years of" banner is missing. Same number of pages. When I clicked on the link to product info it showed the product with the revised cover and a 2001 date.
What is different about this 2007 edition and the 2001 I have? That volume had an enormous amount of information and I love it, but I must confess it did not address things I was particularly interested in.. changes in room layouts (Nora's sink moves around the kitchen) floor plans and changes in neighborhood.

I love the book, and I love ordering from Amazon. First, whatever book I want is going to be there. Next, making my purchase is easy. Finally I know I'm going to get my purchase in a timely manner. Good product, good service. The Summer Wine series is my favorite show on TV so it is very special to have this book (which is excellent).
