First Of The Summer Wine - Series 1 (1988) G.O.L.D. Upgrade [TV Rip (DIVX)]
It's 1939 and young Norman Clegg (David Fenwick), Bill 'Compo' Simmonite (Paul Wyett), Foggy Dewhurst (Richard Lumsden) and Seymour Utterthwaite (Paul McLain) are learning to make their way in the world.
Life in a small Yorkshire town is pretty much the same as it has been for as long as anyone can remember. Now there's a war coming and the young people sense that life will soon change forever.
This show was made as a prequel to the classic comedy "Last of the Summer Wine". It follows the [mis]adventures of the cast when they where still young right on the brink of World War II (the final episode ended with the famous radio broadcast announcing we were at war with Germany).
The series manages to pull it off, with a believable portrayl of how everyones favourite retirees would have behaved when they where lads. Compo was just as much in love with Nora Batty back then, and she loathed him just as bad. You'd think after 50 years she'd have softened to him a little! Look out for Peter Sallis who has a small role playing his own Father.
Such a shame the series only lasted a year, it would have been interesting to see how it would have progressed as a compliment to Last of the Summer Wine. I've never seen repeats of this show so hopefully someone will pick it up one day.
