As a fan of The Last Of The Summer  wine, The longest running sitcom in the history of television.  The biggest frustration as a fan is where to get copies of this Shows.  American PBS doesn't show anything under series 10.  There's only one commerically available DVD's set in the US (series 17)  and only 1-4 in the UK.

On this site we will help you get copies of this wonderful show.   The programs are on NTSC region 1 DVD+R's.   We have had the most success with this format.

Good News & Bad News!


Bad News


Kathy Staff (Nora Batty) passed away December 13th, 2008 and appearantly is not in any of the episodes of series 30.  Nora was such a part of the program and was in from the pilot.  That only leaves Cleggy and Ivy as originals left in the series.  Our loss was Compo's gain.  Look out Nora.


More Bad News


It does appear that series 30 will probably be the last series for "Last of the Summerwine" unless the BBC changes it's mind.  They have not officially cancelled the program - nor have they renewed it.  This great show has been at the cross roads in the past and has weathered the storm.  We shall see this time.



Now For the Good News


The BBC has aired series 30. 

We now have all episodes ready and available.


I think you will enjoy the new characters of Nora's sister and Hobbo.

Just Added



 While ABC had John Newland's "One Step Beyond", and CBS had Rod Serling's "Twilight Zone", NBC had Alfred Hitchcock and Boris Karloff's THRILLER.

Boris Karloff hosted these one hour shows, sometimes suspenseful, sometimes humorous, and sometimes scary, and always entertaining.  It ran for two full seasons and starred some known names and some up and comers.  William Shatner, Russel Johnson, Bruce Dern, John Carridene, Edward Arnald and even Boris Karloff to name a few.

All 67 episodes are available on 17 disks.  There is also a bonus disk 18 with several specials. Episodes and extras listed on 'OTHER HARD TO FIND SERIES' page.        








Brittas Empire

 Chris Barrie plays Gordon Brittas, the well-meaning but incompetent manager of Whitbury New Town Leisure Centre.  The show ran for seven series from 1991 to 1997 on BBC 1.

The Brittas Empire enjoyed a long and successful run throughout the 1990s, and gained itself large mainstream audiences. In 2004 the show came 47th on the BBC's Britain's Best Sitcom poll.  Unlike most sitcoms high body counts, fires, and even explosions are the norm in The Brittas Empire.

Oh, Dr Beeching!

This show tells the story about a group of people working at the Hatley Station. The staff includes a not-too-bright Jack Skinner, the boss; his wife May; their daughter Gloria; Ethel; Vera Plumtree; Harry lambert (Last Of The Summer Wine's Smiler) and many other people. The stories revolve around the staff and their personal love lifes. The show also reunites Jeffrey Holland, Paul Shane and Su Pollard, who worked together on other BBC comedies, "Hi-De-Hi!" and "You Rang, M'Lord?"

So Haunt Me

This is a story of Yetta Feldman, a ghost no less. who haunts a detached house in Meadow Road, scaring off anyone who tries to move in. That is until she meets the Rokeby's, a typical family who decide to help Yetta out.

This is one of Britain's long forgotten, but popular at the time, sitcoms. Like Yetta herself it seems to rest in peace, but maybe, in this day of popular ghost related programmes like Most Haunted and movies like White Noise, So Haunt Me is long overdue for a revival!

First Of The Summer Wine

3 Disks  -  $20.oo

This is an improved set

At first we were reluctant to release these except that they are difficult to find anywhere and we have had many requests for them.  This 1988 - 89  prequel to Last Of The Summer Wine featured many familiar characters (Foggy, Clegg, Compo, Wally, Seymour, Nora, Ivy) and takes place just before the outbreak of WWII in Europe.  All in all 12 episodes and a pilot were made and aired on BBC 1.  These appear to be from an original LP VHS recording, probably from the original airing - so keep that in mind while ordering.  They are still very watchable. 


"Pilot episode" "Taller Exercises" "The Just Doesn't Suit" "Way Of The Warrior" "Snuff and Stuff" "The Great Indoors" "Youth Wanted" "Not Thee Missus" "Compo Drops In" "The Gypsy fidler" "Ain't Love Dangerous" "The Body Snatchers" "Quiet Wedding"
