TV 008: Auf Wiedersehen, Pet (Back With The Boys Again) - Joe Fagin

The second series of Auf Wiedersehen, Pet saw the action move from Germany to England and Spain. It was originally broadcast in 1986.

The magnificent seven returned but sadly Gary Holton (who played Wayne) died while filming was still in progress.

Back With The Boys Again was now chosen to play over the closing credits. It was another hard-rocking and stirring tune from Joe Fagin.
It took on a poignancy of its own when the viewer realised that Wayne's enforced absences were due to his untimely demise and the sentiments expressed in the song could never be realised again.

Comments and feedback are welcome.
