Season 5

2 25 Sep 79 The Flag And Its Snags
3 2 Oct 79 The Flag And Further Snags
4 9 Oct 79 Deep In The Heart Of Yorkshire
5 16 Oct 79 Earnshaw Strikes Back
6 23 Oct 79 Here We Go Into The Wild Blue Yonder
7 30 Oct 79 Here We Go Again Into The Wild Blue Yonder

And there were specials listed for the 1979 season - but I do not know if they are to be included.

26 Dec 78 Small Tune On A Penny Wassail
27 Dec 79 And A Dewhurst Up A Fir Tree

This season would have the classic line-up of Bates, Sallis, and Wilde -plus Kathy Staff as *Nora Batty*

Don't be surprised if you are lukewarm to the program upon first viewing. This is a show that grows on you with each episode. The first time I saw LOTSW I was underwhelmed... but I watched a few more and it began to grow on me. A few more and I was hooked!

Warner and the BBC appear to still be listening (or are we just purchasing them in large enough quantities?) as, though again overpriced for just 7 episodes, we get series five of our favorite retirees.

From the press release:

"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."

Once again, a BBC series does *not* include the "Christmas Special" episodes, 2 this time, that truly should be included. I don't understand this mentality. Hopefully these will someday appear on a LOTSW "Christmas Specials" release.

To Warner/BBC:
Get on with it! At the current release rate of 2 series per year we'll see the successor to Blu-ray come to market before all series are out on standard DVD! For a program with a over 30 year run, 2 per year is entirely too slow a release rate!

Not to take away from the prior series/seasons. Series 5 (1979) starts Foggy, Clegg and Compo off in IMHO the two best series of the show. (Series 5 and Series 6) "Full Steam Behind" is a great episode where the trio has to deal with a runaway train thanks to Compo's hi-jinks. Other great episodes in this DVD include "The Flag and Further Snags", "Earnshaw Strikes Back" and "Here We Go Again Into The Wild Blue Yonder".

I agree with others that say for a 30 year and series run of this show, they do need to get the DVDs out faster than 1 or 2 a year. This is such a great show, especially the early seasons of it with Foggy (Brian Wilde) as the third man.

My only problem with the LotSW DVD releases are the flip-flopping on whether to provide the Christmas Specials or not.

Also,[...] mentioned it would have bonus interviews and this website (amazon.com). Unfortunately that is not the case. There are no bonus interviews. What's up with that Warner Brothers Home Video?? Get a move on, that man and put in the interviews, Christmas Specials and other bonus features!

As always these three aging scamps are always in trouble. The wonderful character actors who prevail on this comedy from the Yorkshire Dales are a refreshing change from the junk that is on the TV now. Hurry up Warner and BBC this series was on for 30 years, so it must be worth putting on the DVDs quicker than you are doing now. ABC, NBC and CBS take note, if I have the choice of your shows or a BBC comedy, the BBC wins every time.
Just love Foggy, Campo and Cleggy. Wish I lived in their village.

My entire family enjoys this series. We no longer receive it on the local PBS station, so we rely on the DVD's. But they are SOOOOO slow in coming out, I can't wait for the next one!! Come on guys, get on the ball here. These shows are super great!

Can't get enough of these characters. Great comedy, wonderful scenery. My great great grandparents lived not too far from where these series were shot in a town called Halifax. I've been there, and the scenery and buildings are so similar.

Everyone knows a fella like compo. He is ready for life in any clothes. Norm plays the dresser fellow. But he supports his buds.

Great episodes as usual. I do wish they packed more into them. How many episodes are made yearly?
