Disc One: The Likely Lads Surviving Episodes:

Before 'Whatever Happened To...' came 'The Likely Lads', a slice of 60s working class life. It slotted in neatly alongside 'Steptoe' and 'Till Death Us Do Part', but this time the focus was on youth and it was set far away from London.

These are the same Terry Collier and Bob Ferris we learnt to love in the legendary 70s series - only younger. Two sharp young Geordies, short on cash, hormones buzzing, eager to live their young lives to the full.

Episodes Comprise:

1. Entente Cordiale.
2. Double Date.
3. Older Women Are More Experienced.
4. The Suitor.
5. Last of the Big Spenders.
6. Rocker.
7. Goodbye To All That.
8. The Other Side Of The Fence.

Disc Two: Whatever Happened To The Likely Lads? Series One:

It's been over five years since Terry Collier left his mate Bob and joined the army. Now returning to civvy street, he finds the country has undergone a sexual revolution, his beloved Newcastle is unrecognisable and worst of all - Bob has an office job, plays badminton and is engaged to prim librarian, Thelma.

Episodes Comprise:

1. Strangers On A Train.
2. Home Is The Hero.
3. Cold Feet.
4. Moving On.
5. I'll Never Forget Whatshername.

Disc Three: Whatever Happened To The Likely Lads? Series Two:

The second - and final - series found Bob now married to Thelma. Dedicated to married life, the nine-to-five and the new-build semi - it seems he has finally left Terry behind. After all what has he got in common with a work-shy, mayhem-making loudmouth - except the past?

Episodes Comprise:

1. Absent Friends.
