The Likely Lads

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.
