Overview

As created and written by Roy Clarke, the British comedy Last of the Summer Wine eventually set a record as the longest-airing sitcom in UK history, with a run that began in November 1973 and extended into the 21st century. Episodes detailed the activities of a group of cantankerous, trouble-prone old men, residents of Holmfirth, West Yorkshire, England. The program swept up both critical accolades and decades of devoted viewers, although, given the premise and the ages of the actors, various cast permutations were frequent. This particular box set contains all of Series 9, which originally aired on the BBC in 1987. The year begins with Foggy (Brian Wilde) leaving for the town of Bridlington, where he's slated to inherit his uncle's lucrative company; meanwhile, retired headmaster-turned-crackpot inventor Seymour Utterthwaite (Michael Aldridge) turns up with his latest creation - a self-propelled wheelbarrow. Later, Clegg, Seymour and Compo take a nostalgic trip that reminds them of the university days of their youth; Compo tests out the concept of a gentleman's purse; Seymour decides to install a new garbage disposal in Edie's house with predictably disastrous results; and much more. Installments include Go with the Flow, Jaws, and Edie and the Automobile.
