A prequel to Roy Clarke’s original Last of the Summer Wine and featuring Peter Sallis, First of the Summer Wine takes place in a small Yorkshire village. The action revolves around the antics of the young Compo, Clegg and Seymour and their usually level headed female counterparts, all of whom are grappling with the world around them, their youth, and their experiences with the opposite sex – usually with hilarious consequences.
Set between May and September 1939 as Hitler’s Nazi Germany and Great Britain become increasingly poised for war the characters’ lives are about to be changed forever.

If your a fan of Last of the Summer Wine then this is a must watch series. Based around the same characters, it shows them before the 2nd World War. Brilliantly made and very funny.

Exactly what you would expect in Holmfirth 30 years prior to the first episodes of Last of the Summer Wine. Great twist the way Cleggy (Peter Sallis) plays his father in the 30s. The teenage Compo, Nora and Wally Batty are portrayed with great accuracy by their younger counterparts but the young Foggy Dewhurst is a spectacle to behold. Great storylines build the characters you've come to know and love. It should not be missed by anyone who is a fan of Summer Wine. I can't wait until the second series of First of the Summer Wine is released.
