The Likely Lads : Summary

Terry Collier (James Bolam) and Bob Ferris (Rodney Bewes) have been friends since they were small children.

Bob is the 'sensible' one, doing his best to get on with his job and 'better' himself.

Terry is the 'irresponsible' one, intent on living life to the full. He's forever getting himself (and Terry) into trouble of one kind or another.

The 'lads' work together and spend their evenings boozing and doing their best to 'pull birds'.

One of the classic sitcoms of the 1960s, many of the recordings were 'lost' when the original master tapes were wiped at the end of the 1960s.

This programme later gave rise to an even better sequel, Whatever Happened To The Likely Lads.
