September Song: The Complete Series 1
This light-hearted but often poignant drama series gave Russ Abbot his first serious TV role following resounding success with Madhouse and The Russ Abbot Show in the 1980s.
Starring opposite Michael Williams (A Fine Romance), Abbot plays Ted Fenwick, a quiet schoolteacher who has lost his wife after nursing her through a long illness, and who finds himself agreeing to spend the summer with old friend Billy Balsam - a barman and former stand-up comic now determined to make a return to the stage. Sharing a camper van in Blackpool and decidedly mixed fortunes, the two men find their unlikely friendship is, at times, sorely tested...
September Song ran for three series between 1993 and 1995. Series One is available here for the first time on DVD.
