If your Saturday evenings are often spent watching IPTV's British comedy lineup, you should be part of the Britcom Club!
Your investment helps us purchase the rights to your favourite British comedies -- which means you can help make sure these shows stay on IPTV. Your membership includes The BritCom Bulletin, a monthly e-newsletter with details on what's happening with British programming on IPTV, mouth-watering recipes and the scoop on all things British. You will also receive invitations to special Britcom events throughout the year.
Really enjoyed the new (4) episodes. Was this the last they will do or will there be future new episodes? It seemed the story line was left open for future ones. (Grandchildren, etc.)
The latest news we have heard is this is the last we will be receiving. But, we have to leave the door open just in case they decide to make more and if budgets permit, we'll have them on the air.
What happened to Brian Wilde who played Foggy?
In 1997, just prior to filming new episodes, he was taken ill and could not continue, so Frank Thornton (Truly) was brought into the series on very short notice--and has stayed. Mr. Wilde has since recovered.
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.
