TV 112: Whatever Happened To The Likely Lads? (Whatever Happened To You?) - Highly Likely

The Likely Lads was one of the best 1960s sitcoms, airing between 1964 and 1966. Unfortunately only eight of the episodes survive which means that re-appraising it is somewhat restricted. Make the best of what you've got.

Seven years later Dick Clement and Ian La Frenais decided to re-unite Bob and Terry for a sequel. Appropriately enough it was called Whatever Happened To The Likely Lads? 26 episodes and a Christmas special were made over the next two years.

The title track, a moving examination of nostalgia and looking back, was released as a single by Highly Likely in 1973.
