First Of The Summer Wine : Summary

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 was a 'prequel' to the long-running BBC sitcom, Last Of The Summer Wine.

Peter Sallis plays the father of the character he plays in Last Of The Summer Wine.
