Last of the Summer Wine - Down the Hatch with More DVDs: Vintage 1979 Release Date, Specs, Price & Box

7 episode collection coming out in North America on June 9th

Posted by David Lambert
    The year is 1979 and Compo, Clegg, Foggy continue their gentle hijinks in the picturesque village of Pennine up in the Yorkshire Dales. The adventures this time around includes Foggy taking Compo and Clegg to see a piece of history - the Steam Preservation Society's reopening of an old railway line. However, Compo and Clegg's energy only go so far when Foggy is in the grip of another enthusiastic ambition. Meanwhile, the trio does not have the monopoly on quirkiness when Sid and Wally are seen creeping around the woods with bedding rolls.

This disc, running 203 minutes for 7 episodes, plus bonus interviews, will cost $24.98 SRP. Full frame video, English mono audio, and English subtitles round out the specs.
