Behind The Scenes

The Official Fansite has  the largest ever collection of Pictures, Interviews, Videos, Magazine Articles and so much more. This  section is always expanding with new additions added almost every month. Many of these collections have been submitted by  fans, and we appreciate everyones help for building this detailed history of Auf Wiedersehen, Pet. Not everything you see in this  section will be strictly ‘Behind The Scenes’, but this is the simplest way of getting everything in one place.
