Last of the Summer Wine – From the Beginning on Drama!

Sadly, Peter Sallis passed away recently – Sallis appeared in every single episode of the long-running BBC sitcom ‘Last of the Summer Wine’. So, what better way to celebrate Sallis’s career than to enjoy ‘Last of the Summer Wine’ from the very beginning? Drama Channel are repeating the show, from the pilot episode, from Friday June 16th, at 1pm and repeated at 6:40pm. With a choice of 295 episodes to show, and five episodes per week, it’s definitely one to put on series link!

I’ve contacted UKTV to see if they plan on screening the Christmas Specials this time around as sometimes these are omitted. UKTV said they plan on screening “…some Christmas specials in August” and more at Christmas. From listings released so far, I can tell you that they’ll have reached the end of Series 3 by July 14th – which will be the 21st episode. Full details below of episodes confirmed so far, which may help.
