Last of the Summer Wine Theme – from Best BBC Tv Themes LP

Last of the Summer Wine was the longest operating sitcom in the UK, from 1973 until 2010 – some 31 series. It followed the antics of 3 retired men (the line up changed several times more than the years, although Norman Clegg, played by Peter Sallis of Wallace & Grommit fame starred throughout). It was set in and about Holfirth in Yorkshire, England and was written by Roy Clarke, who went on to write the wonderful, “Keeping up Appearances”. Here is the theme music, as requested by “APyleOfVinyl”, taken from the LP, “Top BBC Television Themes” on the BBC Records label, from 1978. This isn’t fairly the version with which I am familiar, which attributes a harmonica playing the lead, but possibly this was a slightly earlier version. It was composed by the legendary Ronnie Hazlehurst. I hope you appreciate this mellow track – it brings back memories of Sunday evenings for me, although I ought to admit, I did stop watching the programme a few years ago!
