The writer of First of the Summer Wine, Roy Clarke OBE, has kindly sent the following message.

Thank you for your interesting letter. “First of the Summer Wine” was always of particular interest to me. The idea of airing the show intermittently with “Last of the Summer Wine” offered – I still feel – some great opportunities for deepening characters as well as humour. I wanted to follow these people through the Second World War and this too would have added much effective material for both shows to draw from. However, it was not to be.

I do wish you well with your initiative to mark the programme…you have my best regards for your plans and I wish you every success with them.
