In Loving Memory: The Complete Series 1
Oldshaw, 1929; when you could enjoy a night out at the Theatre Royal, a pint in the interval, a hot pie on the way home – and still have change from a shilling. You could also have an argument with a brewer’s dray and end up as a client of Jeremiah Unsworth and Co., Undertakers and Monumental Masons... and be given one of the most disastrous funerals in the long and noble history of undertaking...
Thora Hird (Last of the Summer Wine) brings her inimitable humour to the role of Ivy Unsworth in this much-loved comedy series set in a fictional Lancashire mill town. As the widow of funeral director Jeremiah (who dies in the first episode), Ivy is left to run Unsworth and Co. along with her equally accident-prone nephew, Billy (Christopher Beeny – Upstairs Downstairs). In Loving Memory was a huge success for Yorkshire Television and ran for fi ve series between 1979 and 1986; this complete first series, which also features appearances by Richard Wilson, Liz Smith and Joan Sims, was originally screened in 1979.
