Yanks Go Home COMPLETE S 1-2
Yanks Go Home takes a hilarious (and, in its day, controversial) look at relations between a group of American servicemen and the inhabitants of the Lancashire town in which they are billeted during World War Two. Both parties experience a series of culture shocks, with the GIs encountering resentment and romance in equal measure. Starring Stuart Damon, Bruce Boa, Lionel Murton and Peter Sallis, this set comprises all thirteen episodes from both series.
It’s 1942, and a detachment of GIs is about to descend on Warrington. The town clerk, a motley crowd and a band wait anxiously at the station, while local landlady Phoebe Sankey and her daughter, Doreen, speculate as to what the Americans’ arrival will bring. Some of the older residents are none too keen on the prospect of USAF troops making themselves at home in their town; but when they see the money flowing in the local pub as a shindig gets going, even they grudgingly admit that the ‘invasion’ has its advantages!
