The Rag Trade - The Complete First LWT Series

Peter Jones (The Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy) and Miriam Karlin (So Haunt Me) star as Harold Fenner - the much put-upon proprietor of Fenner Fashions - and Paddy, his ever-so-militant trade union shop steward, in a comedy that's 'designed' to get you laughing...

A huge success in the early 1960s for the BBC running for three series, the programme's popularity was such that the cast and writers reunited a decade later for two further series - only this time made by LWT. As well as Jones and Karlin reprising their roles as antagonists, new additions to the cast included Christopher Beeny as Tony and Anna Karen (On The Buses) as Olive.

This set contains all fifteen episodes that comprised the first LWT series (The Rag Trade's fourth in total), including the festive special, shown on Christmas Eve 1977.

First released: Monday 11th February 2008
