Reprising the television series roles that first made them household names, Richard Beckinsale and Paula Wilcox star as Geoffrey Scrimshaw and Beryl Battersby, a hesitant, inexperienced, young couple attempting to negotiate the sexual minefield of the 'permissive' society.
This big-screen transfer of Jack Rosenthal's hugely likeable sitcom sees old-fashioned girl Beryl continuing to slap down the advances of her frustrated boyfriend, whose clumsy attempts to initiate 'Percy Filth' suggest he's not quite up to speed himself!
The Lovers! is featured here in a brand-new transfer from original film elements in its as-exhibited theatrical aspect ratio.
Like everyone else, Geoffrey and Beryl want to fall in love - or they think they do; like everyone else, since Adam and Eve. But Adam and Eve didn't live in Manchester in 1972...

If ordering from a UK store, please note that you are in Region 1 (DVD)/Region A (Blu-ray), whilst the UK is in Region 2/B, respectively. This means that many - but by no means all - may fail to play. Look for products marked "Region free", "All regions", "Region 0" or "Multi-region". Blu-rays may also be marked "Region A/B/C", or variations thereof. You may also check whether your DVD/Blu-ray player supports multi-region playback (also referred to as "region free"), or whether it can be set to do so. There should, of course, be no problems with books, CDs, or other physical items.
