BEHIND THE SCENES
A quick selection of unseen pictures
Auf Wiedersehen, Pet 1983-86.
On November 11th 1983, Neville Hope spoke these immortal words, “Dearest Brenda,
we are now at sea” and millions of us were hooked! We have followed the adventures
of “The Magnificent Seven” as they have headed off to Dusseldorf, England, Spain,
Cuba and Thailand.
Dennis, Oz, Neville, Bomber, Barry, Moxey and Wayne and Wyman,have travelled the
world laying bricks, putting up bridges and drinking a lot of beer. We first saw
the boys working on a building site in Dusseldorf. 2 years later the lads are reunited
by Barry, to finish work on his house in Wolverhampton. They stay together to work
on Thornley Manor in Derbyshire, terrorising Arthur ‘Tiger’ Pringle at The Barley
Mow before heading off to Spain to finish work on Ally Fraser’s Pool.
The show returned to our screens in 2002, and the boys started work dismantling the
Middlesbrough Transporter Bridge before heading off to Arizona, USA to put it back
up again on an Indian Reservation.
The show returned in 2004 twice, when the lads headed off to Cuba and Thailand. In
Cuba, one of the lads was recruited as a Spy, and one of them fell in love with a
Ballet Dancer. We then saw them back on screen working in Laos, then having a wild
time in Bangkok, before seeing Barry taken hostage at a temple. It’s down to the
rest of the lads to rescue him.
This was the last ever outing for the boys for now, with Neville finally saying,
“Auf Wiedersehen, Pet.”
“I don't think a day goes by when somebody doesn't come up to me & say 'I really love Auf Wiedersehen, Pet I watched it when I was a kid.' It's over 30 yrs old and the massive affection it engendered when it was first on, appears to continue.”
