Last of the Summer Wine (Close)

By the final series of the world's longest-running sitcom, two of its cast were accustomed to being superimposed in exterior scenes due to the cost of insuring octogenarians. Ronnie Hazlehurst, in addition to the mellow theme, orchestrated incidental music through episodes – expertly complementing Clegg's profundities, Foggy's militaristic zeal, Compo's lustful advances for Nora Batty, all of those flights over low stone walls, and the older ladies of Holmfirth territorially sizing up a sticky bun. 1983 TV film "Getting Sam Home" is widely considered the best vintage.
