    R1 DVD Vintage Extras

    The complete box set has all the Christmas specials along with the original episodes, but appears to be lacking a few extras / specials that are on the R1 "Vintage" DVDs. Which is a shame because I think they really should have been included to complete the package. The 30 Years of Last of the...

    Main, front page possible glitch

    Since trying Firefox browser recently I noticed on our main page that a facebook add overlaps most of the Community Forums button. Did not notice it doing that when using Google Chrome browser in the past. Could be just something peculiar with my setup. Still able to click around the advert...

    Why Squirrels as title of show?

    I have been watching some episodes of my The Squirrels DVD's and am curious as to why it was named so. I'm liking it, it is funny. Ken Jones of The Wackers is in it as well as Patsy Rowlands of Hallelujah! The dvd set does mention that it only contains 22 existing of the 29 episodes. That...

    Cannon & Ball clips

    Stumbled across some skits by these guys on the you tube. First time I think I have seen any of their skits. A good chuckle. While watching this one I thought that big guy drinking the beers looked familiar. Turns out he was Kevin* the 'Wise Man of the Woods' in the LotSW episode It all...

    Hazelhurst Shanty

    Watched The Swan Man of Ilkley last night and noticed some more of the cleverness of music composer Ronnie Hazelhurst. Around the 5:45 mark where Tom is adjusting the snorkle on a dummy's diving suit outside of Aunty's there is a very brief tune played I believe is called Drunken Sailor. It is...

    Another Holmfirth video and a tiger!

    Just discovered this neat video. Thanks to whoever made and shared it. Has some nice footage of the area of June-ish (?) 2020. The narrator mentions Holmfirth had a zoo at one time which seemed very popular. Something I did not know. Also that there was a lady who owned a tiger and would...

    Some recent 'new to me' shows

    Over the past some weeks I have been introduced to some new to me shows off the youtube. Found a few gems. Ever searching for more. Odd Man Out - John Inman acts pretty much just like he did in Are You Being Served? Josephine Tewson of Keeping Up Appearances and LotSW is in it as well. One...

    Twigs in pints?

    Hi, was watching Jonny Smith on the Car Pervert youtube channel earlier. A person being interviewed mentioned skilled craftsmen and guys who drink pints with twigs in them. A quick googley search showed me pictures of mugs with sprigs of hops in them. Not super helpful as it did not bring up...

    A nice article on LotSW

    Some of you may have seen this already but it is new to me. A nice little article on why the formula for the show was so likable. https://www.telegraph.co.uk/culture/tvandradio/10428682/Last-of-the-Summer-Wine-Brilliant-flat-capped-whimsy.html

    Speaking Clock

    I remember an episode where Foggy impersonates the Speaking Clock. This got me wondering recently how many of us used to call that service with any regularity back in the day. Don't imagine many do nowadays with most having a cell phone or clocks or watches that connect to a server somewhere...

    A Happy 50th B-day to Paul Riley!

    Saw the article this morn. The actor of Still Game's Winston Ingram has hit the big Five O. https://www.glasgowtimes.co.uk/news/18375501.amp/ OK, looking at the date of the article I see I am a day late. Cheers. :18:

    Only When I Laugh - question

    Watched this show a few months back. Was slow to take to it but I started liking more as it grew on me after a few episodes. I discovered the show when I saw that Peter Bowles was in it and liked him from Rising Damp and Manor Born. At first I thought there was a central character that the...

    Navid / Still Game question

    I had the urge to watch some snippets of Still Game last night and wondered something about this clip. The guys mention that Meena has gone to the Cash n Carry store. Judging by the empty shelves I imagine she went there to get supplies Navid can sell. When Meena returns with the bags Navid...

    Paula Wilcox Upstart Crow interview

    I just stumbled across this interview with Paula and really enjoyed it. It is an older interview - 2016. I'm really liking the new sitcom Upstart Crow. Mentioned this in another thread some time ago. Seen the first two series and considering buying the dvds to get the 3rd series which I have...

    Portugal anyone?

    Hi all. Portugal has been popping up on my travel news feeds recently. Seems like a really nice place to visit. Some are also saying a potential place they would like to even possibly retire there in the future. I wondered how many on here have been there and what their thoughts on the...

    Expired Horlicks?

    I bought some Horlicks a while ago after remembering Foggy talk about it. Wanted to give it a try. Drank some for a time, put it aside and forgot about it. It is made in the UK, think some are produced in India. The date on it says Best Before October 31th 2019. It does not smell any...

    Some Hade Edge Snow Vids

    Noticed these the other day. Sorry if the title seems like click bait. The scenery is pretty and it is good to see some snow somewhere at this time of season. I know it is a bit too warm for snow currently (late January) in the Holmfirth valley. Hade Edge is just a few miles south of...

    Amazon Prime Video users....

    Hi, I'm wondering if there are any Amazon Prime video users here. I have some questions and not finding the answers on their website. -Is there a difference between Amazon Prime and Amazon Prime Video? Get the impression it might be two different things. -About the options when mousing...

    Still Game Oct 13th 2 for 1 tickets

    Don't know if any of you fans of the show plan to be in the area at the time. Saw this article in the Scottish Sun for half price tickets to their Final Farewell show at the Hydro. Remember - He who hingeth aboot get heehaw...

    Weclome Mat available.

    I was hit by a silly thought from the show Still Game earlier that had me wonder if they sell a 'Weclome Mat" online like what they had in the show. Felt that would be a hilarious inside joke to have by the door. Jumping online to one of my favorite sites (besides this one) - ebay I had a...
