    Series 1 DVD & VHS Query

    On most DVD and VHS copies of series 1, the first three episodes (Short Back and Palais Glide, Inventor of the 40 Foot Ferret, and Pate and Chips) are all joined together and not as originally broadcast. Is there a reason for this at all? I do have them recorded from the Yesterday channel where...

    NHS verses people with no internet access

    Dad and I are both under the hospital, me for my cancer treatment and Dad for his cataracts. Of course, since Covid disrupted our lives, our local NHS trust have started doing everything on the internet. Dad recently received a letter asking him to fill out a form online to help confirm he was...

    A TV advert with a shot of Holmfirth in it.

    Can anyone help me to identify a TV advert which I think had a shot of Holmfirth in it. I believe it was for either Boots or some sun tan lotion/skin cream/make up and I believe was broadcast in spring or summer 2019. It had several quite quick shots of British towns with one building replaced...

    Established parts of the series before they were actually in the show.

    Whilst watching LOTSW, in quite a few episodes, I have noticed things that were well established parts of the series a long time before they were actually in the show, mainly in the background of shots, or if the scene was in the same location. For example, in Wellies to Wet Suit, when Foggy and...

    Things Auntie sold to Clegg

    I'm wondering, can anyone name any of the things Auntie Wainwright sold to Clegg that he never wanted? He must have a cellar full by now. What were they and which episode did he buy them in?

    Sub-TIT-les

    Just wondering which episode Compo said he'd been to the cinema and the film had, what he called "sub-tit-les". I want to watch it, but I can't remember which episode it was. I know it was a Blamire one.

    Your favourite Summer Wine guest stars

    Summer Wine has had some great guest stars over the years, whether they were a big part of am episode's plot, or just a tiny bit part. Who is your favourite and why? For me, it had to be Oswald Green in the Changing Face of Rural Blamire. I forget the actor's name, but the character had great...

    Anyone found they are busier DURING the lockdown than before it?

    I have. In normal circumstances I usually don't have much to do at home, but I've been much busier than normal. I have done many jobs there would be no need for otherwise. I'll make a list. I have: Used up an afternoon making up an online shopping order. (Which incidentally, can't be delivered...

    Bicycles

    Have you ever noticed that there are quite a few Summer Wine episodes with bicycles as an important part of the plot, perhaps more than you think. Can anyone name them?

    A Merry Heatwave question

    Was the episode "A Merry Heatwave" ever specifically intended to be a Christmas special or was it just an ordinary part of a series. I ask because it was broadcast on 1st January, which is within the Christmas and New Year holidays, but with other episodes broadcast within a week of it, it did...

    Continuity errors and mistakes

    Apart from the obvious mistakes, like Ivy's kitchen window, has anyone ever noticed any other mistakes or continuity errors in any Summer Wine episode. I know there was a scene with Edie and Wesley where Wesley is leaning on a newspaper on the kitchen table. One minute it is there, and the next...

    If two of the "third men" should ever meet.....

    Do correct me if I'm wrong here, but I believe that sometime in the late 1980s or early 1990s a script was written involving Seymour AND Foggy, although it was abandoned as Michael Aldridge died in 1994 before the idea went any further. There have been episodes featuring two of the "third men"...

    Your favourite Summer Wine line

    What's your favourite line from any episode of Summer Wine? Perhaps we could guess who said it and which episode it was in? Try not to make it too obvious though. Here's mine. "Awww, they've all melted! It's like dipping your fingers in chutney."

    Foggy with a Land Rover - but not Wesley's!

    Well, this photo came from a Land Rover history book I have, and I'm hoping you all can make this out from the quality of the photo, but who is that driving the Land Rover out of the plane? It looks like our very own Foggy Dewhurst!
