Last of the Summer Wine

Season 1 (2010)

The youthful antics of three elderly friends tramping around Yorkshire began in 1973. The original pilot, with Ronnie Hazlehurst's gentle theme tune, was broadcast in January. The rest of the series aired between November and December. The central trio comprised of Michael Bates as Blamire, Bill Owen as Compo, and Peter Sallis as Clegg. Series one also introduced viewers to Sid (John Comer), Ivy (Jane Freeman) and Nora Batty (Kathy Staff). Sid and Ivy owned a cafe and often had blazing rows in the kitchen, but there was little doubt they loved each other. Nora, proudly devoted to housework, was Compo's next-door neighbour. Her famous wrinkled stockings caused Compo's heart to flutter and his unrequited lust generated many a comic situation.

A Christmas special in 1978 guest-starred Yorkshire-born actor and comedian Teddy Turner.
