Now, before I continue, I have to admit that I never really cared much for the original "Last Of The Summer Wine" series at all.... that is, until I first chanced upon the pilot film of this series - shown in 1988, preceding the first series of six episodes which aired later that same year - and was completely taken in. It was a total revelation - following the lives of Compo, Clegg and Foggy, together with Norah and Wally, as youngsters during 1930s Britain - produced with meticulous attention to period detail, augmented by some truly gorgeously evocative soundtracks.
When the series was first shown, I recorded all of the dozen episodes on VHS video and would repeatedly watch them over and over again, so enthralled was I with the sense of nostalgic abandon as we followed the antics of the young protagonists in their daily conquests.
The date for the first six episodes was set at May 1939, with four months to go before the onset of WWII ..... Obviously, despite the tomfoolery on display, there were lots of poignant little reminders and asides that Britain was, after all, on the threshold of heading into war with the enemy, and the sporadic interludes featuring crackly radio news bulletins juxtaposed with big band swing numbers brought about a sense of foreboding that only those who were living during this period could truly identify with. Brilliantly executed: casting Peter Sallis as the young Norman Clegg's father was a bit of a masterstroke.Read more ›
The historical settings for the 1930s were convincing, with adult attitudes to the younger generation porttrayed as my parents would talk about when I was young in the late 1930s and 40s.
characters but soon realized that they had done a masterful job. This set blends right in
and is great viewing on it's own.
Then I saw the complete box set on Amazon, since I purchased the same I have court up with the missing episodes and reenjoyed the whole serie again which I thought was superb. I recomend this item to any body who likes a good laugh
and a chuckle
