The Likely Lads
One of the very best and most popular British TV sitcoms, The Likely Lads starred James Bolam (Terry) and Rodney Bewes (Bob) as two working-class lads living in the north-east of England in the 1960s. Written by Dick Clement and Ian La Frenais (Porridge), the witty dialogue and sharp observations of working class Britain was an instant hit.
The stories focused on the friendship of Terry and Bob as they reacted to true-to-life dilemmas such as cash shortages, the pursuit of the opposite sex (a constant theme), their work in an electrical components factory, and their support of a struggling football team.

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", "Region free", 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.
