A nostalgic trip down memory lane
on 31 July 2001
This video offers avid fans the chance to take a trip down the memory lane of 1977. Four complete programmes are offered from that year and each is introduced by a fresh-faced Helen Worth. It was enjoyable looking back at the early lives of some of the current cast members such as Gail, Deirdre, Ken, Mike, Emily and Rita. The video also gives a chance to look back at Stan and Hilda's hilarious exploits in a posh hotel and to watch Annie Walker (as Elizabeth I) and Ena Sharples (as Queen Victoria) compete for pole position on the Jubilee Float. Taking part are other characters long departed but never forgotten such as Eddie Yeats, Elsie Tanner, Mavis Riley and Bet Lynch. I'd forgotten what a tiger Bet Lynch was - a classic cat fight brought it all back !
