It is a shame that the BBC is ending Last of the Summer Wine. This was a comedy that supplied laughs and laughs without having to resort to foul language and sexual inneundo as many comidies do today. All fo the characters that appeared in this series were truly artists and they will be missed. I don't understand the reasoning for ending this series as I feel it is as popular as ever. I hope the public can convince the BBC to change their minds.

I do not understand the motives of the BBC when they cancelled this great show "Last of the Summer Wine". Luckily I have taped many of the shows and enjoy watching them. Compared with today's comedies which depend on foul language and sex, Last of the Summer Wine stood like a giant. The BBC should hang their heads in shame.

I have loved "Last of The Summer Wine" for years. Last series we saw in America was 2006. I would like to know if Peter Sallis and Frank Thornton are still living. Thank you
