Last of the Summer Wine: From the Director's Chair I had often wondered the secrets of baths, etc moving on their own and this book reveals all It tells the back ground to the filming of the series and the problems Alan Bell had to contend wiith making the series against a back cloth of arguments among some of the cast, particularly Brian Wylde If you love the tv series you cannot afford to miss this book which supplies so much useful information. This book gives the viewer an insight from the directors point of view what happened when HE Alan Bell started filming on last of the summer wine and not at the beginning which it started in 1972 The story is very moving and tells you mostly what the actors felt and how the director handled situations with the actors If you are a last of the summer wine fan then this book is a must because it shows what the series doesn t, what happened off screen which got me wanting and but there was one actor which was missed out which I am not naming which was a disappointing The Bill Owen section of the book got me in tears Buy the book it is worth buying. A really good read and essential for any LOTSW fans I almost felt like I had been part of the TV show after reading it and it was a great shame to get to the end of the book, especially as the show is no longer on TV, apart from satellite channel repeats The book is nicely laid out and full of excellent photographs of the cast, taken during filming Alan Bell does not shy away from criticism of the BBC, which is good Even if you have Andrew Vine s splendid book you must get this one too, as it gives the real inside story of Compo, Clegg, Foggy, Nora Batty and the rest, and the photographs are rather better Another example of a BBC comedy that was outstandingly excellent, despite the pen pushing, axe wielding BBC management trying to thwart the best efforts of brilliant actors, scriptwriters and the producer director Very pleased indeed that I bought this booka MUST HAVE for LOTSW viewers An excellent book from the man who was responsible for bringing this amazing series to our tv screens for over thirty years His inside knowledge of the writer, caste the joys and perils of outside recording in the heart of beautiful Yorkshire are expertly recorded in this not to b missed tome Perhaps if the BBC was to read it they might consider using some of this priceless resource to replace some of the rubbish which passes for comedy these days I found Alan J W Bell s recollection from making each episode of Lost the summer Wine truly fascinating This book is a must have for Summer Wine fans who want to learn about the show There are a few inaccuracies but don t let that deter you from reading this book. THIS IS A MUST READ FOR ALL YOU LAST OF THE SUMMER WINE FANS IT SPILLS THE BEANS ON ALL THE STARS OF THIS SERIES GREAT INTERVEIWS WITH THE ACTORS AND FANTASTIC PHOTOS AS WELL A MUST BUY.AND A WONDERFUL GREAT PRICE AS WELL THIS WON T BREAK THE BANK. This book is an essential read, going behind the scenes of LotSW over nearly 30 years, telling the highs and lows of a long running series loved by its fans yet maligned by unimaginative critics and apathetic bosses.It holds no punches, and is a perfect companion to the Andrew Vine book released the other year, with lots detail about its unceremonious axing.The only real downside to the book is it could have done with another proof reading, as there are plenty of basic errors Many open brackets never close, sometimes a title followed by a year for example Jaws 1988 is given twice in the same paragraph, and sometimes two nigh on identical sentences follow each other, plus episodes are sometimes given the wrong year.On the whole, a recommended read for anyone interested in TV directing, especially comedy.
