Bill Owen's last season ends with a poignant special called "Last Pigeon and Post". He would not live to participate in Season 21.

Bill insisted on trying to complete all filming. In fact, he was not able to complete all the filming for the final special. The producers of the show were forced to use his double for some scenes and to electronically drop his image into some others. I think they did a seamless job.

Some of the most touching images in the show feature a frail Compo sitting alone and looking completely disheartened. The extreme close-ups of Bill Owen's eyes illustrate just how ill the actor was at this point.

Compo's friends and neighbors take up a collection to send him on a vacation to France, to re-visit the country where he served in WWII. The whole cast show ups to cheer him on his way. He even gets an unsolicited farewell kiss from Nora Batty!

In France, compo searches through the country side, looking for the spot where he and his buddies were penned down by the Germans. Once there, Compo takes out his bugle and plays "Last Post", the U.K. military's equivalent of the U.S. military's "Taps" in remembrance of his comrades of long ago.

No one who loves this show will be able to watch Bill Owen's farewell performance with dry eyes.

I think you will enjoy this vocal version of the Last of the Summer Wine theme:

The product description for this video is incorrect, Foggy has been replaced by Trully and so please refer to Last Of The Summer Wine Website to obtain a complete list of episodes for this DVD. It is worth the purchase price as this was truly a memorable series and features the last appearances of campo prior to his death of cancer. God Bless British Comedy as American comedy is still behind by a few years.

Last of the summer wine is the world's longest running sit com. Soothing real comedy. We watch it over and over. Wish we could get the entire shows series in one purchase. Many of the actors have left us. Hated to see it discontinued.

Love the series and the actors- no I have the grand kids watching Compo and Foggy. Blending of the story line is great.

This is a must have video for Summer Wine fans. Although Bill Owen appears in 3 episodes of the next DVD, "Last Post and Pigeon" contains the last filming he did. The Millennium special features all the regulars but shows the "Trio" in France to remember where Compo served during the war. The story line is excellent and the acting superb. There are many other great episodes in this last full season with Bill Owen, Peter Sallis and Frank Thornton together.

I've been a fan of this series for years. I'm thrilled to have all the dvd's that are currently available. It's wonderful to have a series that is family friendly. It's a criminal shame that they dumped them with an e-mail just to make room for a more modern series. Longevity and high quality should have stood for something. There's a quality with this series that will never be equaled again. I'm thrilled to have copies to watch to my hearts content. The series is very, very funny and I never tire of watching them. Would highly recommend it to anyone. The 1990's is the very best of all the years. Very glad it's available to all of us.

And the fun continues. The addition of Frank Thornton(Truely of the Yard)in no way diminishes the fun to be held in this set. The special is a fine introduction of his character. I felt that his was a very smooth transition from Foggy to Turely.
