The Complete Auf Wiedersehen Pet Story


Formats & editions


The hit drama of the 1980s returns to our screens - and now to our
bookshelves.

AufWeidersehen, Pet was first broadcast in 1984 and quickly became one of Britain's best-loved dramas. It followed the lives of builders from Newcastle who travel to Germany in a desperate search for work. The cast shot to stardom and became household names almost overnight.

This year saw Jimmy Nail, Kevin Whatley and the rest of the cast return 16 years after the last episode was filmed. Broadcast on BBC I, the first episode of the new series attracted a staggering 12 million viewers and a 47% audience share. THE COMPLETE 'AUF WEIDERSEHEN, PET' STORY contains a detailed history of the show, unseen material from the series and interviews with cast and crew including Jimmy Nail, Kevin Whately and Timothy Spall.
