5.0 out of 5 stars Finally!! Now can we have the 2nd series too, please!, 24 Jun. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The First of the Summer Wine - Series One [DVD] (DVD)
This prequel series is a wonderful addition to any LOTSW fan's dvd collection. I wish some background material on the making of this program could be produced and included on the dvds, but I'm very pleased that the Beeb has finally gotten this much of the series out!!

It appears that the cast did a lot of work to tailor their performances into wonderful portrayals of younger versions of Clegg, Compo, Foggy, Seymour, Nora, Ivy, Wally, etc. Peter Sallis and Roy Clark favourite Maggie Ollerenshaw do a wonderful Mr. & Mrs. Clegg. The sets and attention to period detail are incredible. The pilot is especially poignant at the end, with the transposition of a Hitler speech over a scene of young people dancing at a church social.

If you loved LOTSW, this series is not to be missed!
