The Rag Trade - The Complete LWT Series

Another huge comedy hit from On The Buses creators Ronald Wolfe and Ronald Chesney, The Rag Trade stars Peter Jones and Miriam Karlin - as Harold Fenner, the much put-upon proprietor of Fenner Fashions, and Paddy, his ever-so-militant trade union shop steward - in a sitcom that's "designed" to get you laughing!

Originally a successful BBC sitcom from the early 1960s, a decade later both cast and writers reunited for two further series - this time made by London Weekend Television for the ITV network. As well as Jones and Karlin reprising their roles as the series main antagonists, new additions to the cast included In Loving Memory's Christopher Beeny, On The Buses' Anna Karen and an early role for EastEnders' Gillian Taylforth.

This set contains all 22 LWT episodes, including the 1977 Christmas special.

First released: Monday 13th August 2018
