    Thank you for sharing this video. I grew up on this show and loved every episode. Thank you Bill for the laughter and your stellar performance you gave in every episode. Forever missed, Never forgotten.

    I am a good fan of this show. I am really astonished at the amount of time, effort and manpower that was needed to make this show. Even the simplest of scenes seem to need much care and retakes, though I am aware that they did have plenty of time in between episodes to get them done.

    It is still amazing considering the storyboard creating and script writing time needed and then putting it into the practicality stage of the production process. They were at a rabbit’s pace I’m sure.

    Thanks for uploading Morris.  I think Last of the Summer Wine was brilliant.  Sadly a lot of the cast are no longer with us.  Thank you for making everyone laugh and God bless them all
