What is the theme song of this show and who performs it?
"Last of the Summer Wine Theme" was composed by Ronnie Hazlehurst, who also wrote the theme music for other Britcoms such as ARE YOU BEING SERVED?, TO THE MANOR BORN, YES MINISTER, and THE FALL & RISE OF REGINALD PERRIN. UPDATE: It was performed by Tony Philpot, whose musical credits include CAMPION, THE BUCCANEERS, PEOPLE'S CENTURY and HETTY WAINTHROPP INVESTIGATES. A compilation CD was released in the mid-90s, but according to our PBS source is very difficult to find.
What happened to Compo? On the show they suddenly had a funeral episode. Did the actor playing the part die?
Bill Owen (Compo) died of cancer three years ago at age 85 . He had been with the series for over 25 years from the beginning. The character Compo was written out of the series, and the writers devoted three episodes to his death and funeral. Bill Owen's son Tom then joined the series as Compo's long-lost son. At his request, Bill Owen was buried in the Yorkshire village where the series is filmed.
What do the letters "FH" stand for on Onslow's cap?
According to sources, "FH" stands for Fulton Hogan, a New Zealand airport development, management, and technology company. The hat was given to Geoffrey Hughes (Onslow) by an employee of the company while he was visiting that country.
