AUF WIEDERSEHEN, PET

Auf Wiedersehen, Pet was one of the most popular TV shows to come out of Britain in the early-mid 1980s, and again, when revived, in the early part of the 21st Century.

The original series was set on a building site in Germany, and was first broadcast by ITV in 1983. The second series was set in Spain, and broadcast in 1986. Marred by the death of Gary Holton, who played chirpy Cockney punk Wayne, the second series often included body doubles for Holton.

Though 'Auf Wiedersehen, Pet' was one of the most popular shows on TV, the loss of Gary Holton knocked the stuffing out of the show.

The series had a motley crew of three Geordies - slobbish, but occasional psychological genius Oz (Jimmy Nail), worrier and decent family man Neville (Kevin Whately), team leader and rock Dennis (Tim Healy). Whingeing Brummie Barry Taylor (Timothy Spall) - and somehow flash Wayne's best mate, dodgy, lovable Scouser Moxey (Christopher Fairbank), and Bristolian gentle giant Bomber (Pat Roach).

'Auf Wiedersehen, Pet' was revived in 2002 - this time on the BBC. Featuring the surviving original cast members, and original writers, Dick Clement and Ian la Frenais.
