    In the world's longest-running sitcom, Britain's oldest (if not wisest) adolescents uncork a barrelful of laughs and make a toast…to life! It's Christmastime, but nothing keeps Compo, Clegg and Foggy from their gentle hijinks in the picturesque village of Pennine up in the Yorkshire Dales. Compo succombs to the charms of digital watches, Foggy starts his Christmas shopping in the summer, someone decides that lamposts are for climbing and a cottage the boys rent for the holiday doesn't live up to its advertisement.
The BBC and distributor Warner Home Video have announced that their next DVD release in the long-running Britcom will be Last of the Summer Wine - Christmas Specials 1978-1982, a single-disc release that will be available on October 13th (just in time to gear up for the holiday season). Cost is $24.98 for 126 minutes. Although the studio announcement doesn't list it, a check of TV.com's online episode guide shows that the Christmas specials during the indicated years consisted of 1978's "Small Tune On A Penny Wassail," 1979's "And A Dewhurst Up A Fir Tree," 1981's "Whoops" and 1982's "All Mod Conned." Video on this DVD will be presented in full screen, with audio in English mono and English subtitles as well. Stay tuned for cover art!
