Last of the Summer Wine - Series 29 (2008) [PDTV]
Last of the Summer Wine is a British sitcom written by Roy Clarke that is broadcast on BBC One. Last of the Summer Wine premiered as an episode of Comedy Playhouse on 4 January 1973 and the first series of episodes followed on 12 November 1973. Since 1983, Alan J. W. Bell has produced and directed all episodes of the show. The 30th series premiered on 19 April 2009. On the 26 June 2009 the BBC announced that it had recommissioned the show for its 31st series, consisting of 6 episodes to be broadcast in 2010.
Last of the Summer Wine is set and filmed in and around Holmfirth, West Yorkshire, England and centres around a trio of old men whose line-up has changed over the years. The original trio consisted of Bill Owen as the scruffy and child-like Compo, Peter Sallis as deep-thinking, meek Clegg and Michael Bates as authoritarian and snobbish Blamire. When Bates left in 1976 after two series, the role of the third man of the trio was filled in various years up to the 30th series by the quirky war veteran, Foggy (Brian Wilde), the eccentric inventor, Seymour (Michael Aldridge), and former police officer Truly (Frank Thornton). The men never seem to grow up and develop a unique perspective on their equally eccentric fellow townspeople through their youthful stunts. The cast has grown to include a variety of supporting characters, each contributing their own subplots to the show and often becoming unwillingly involved in the schemes of the trio. The main cast of the 30th series consists of Russ Abbot as a former milkman who fancies himself a secret agent, Hobbo, Burt Kwouk as the electrical repairman, Entwistle, and Brian Murphy as the childish Alvin. Sallis and Thornton, both past members of the trio, continue on in supporting roles.

A massive thanks to Hannibal & Norman for the original uploads.
Episode 8 is from a HDTV source but is encoded down to usual PDTV specs. Its all directly sourced digital TV at the end of the day anyway and as i say all the avi encodes are to the same specs. There is no noticable difference in quality at all. I got it approved just incase i balls'd something up:
PS - If anyone has PDTV encodes of S28E01 or S28E03 then please upload them so we can make a PDTV pack for that series.
