Young Hyacinth

On 2 September 2016, a new prequel by First of the Summer Wine writer Roy Clarke aired in the UK on BBC One.  Young Hyacinth is a prequel to Keeping Up Appearances, which ran from 1990-95.  Set in the 1950s, it stars Kerry Howard in the title role, with Katie Redford as Rose, Katherine Pearce as Daisy, Tamla Kari as Violet and Mark Addy as Daddy.  Like First of the Summer Wine, a quality period production, it is not yet known if this will be a one off or  if a full series will follow.  Anyone who missed it (in the UK) can watch it on BBC iPlayer or purchase it from the BBC Store.
