The adventures of a gang of British workmen abroad. Combines black and white humour with moments of drama, poignancy and drunkenness. In series 1, the lads head to Germany seeking work, and are thrown together by virtue of shared nationality and a run-down wooden hut. The story follows the lads' relationships with women, Germans and each other, and their attempts at passing the time away from home, saving money and ordering food in a German curry house. The series ends with new employment legislation forcing some of the Brits having to choose between the UK and their new-found pleasures abroad. Two years later the gang are reunited for a second series, in which they travel to Wolverhampton to rebuild both the "magnificent seven" and Barry's home for his impending marriage. A further offer of work sees the lads head to a Derbyshire stately home in need of refurbishment. Here they fall foul of an irritable pub landlord, suspicious locals, a less than enlightened employer and the Inland ... Written by
In a The South Bank Show documentary in the late '80s, Jimmy Nail said that he wouldn't play Oz again as he thought it was a character that no one nowadays would find funny.

Stick your Bo'selecta and your little britain where the sun don't shine. Aufpet is a great mix of drama and comedy (black & white humour).
Seris 1 was brilliant. Following the 'maginificent 7' (Tim Healy, Jimmy Nail, Kevin Whately, Pat Roach, Gary Holton, Christopher fairbank and Timothy spall) as they move to germany for 6 months to get away from england, where they are unemployed.
Seris two reunites the magnificent 7 as they travel across england until they eventually get to spain
Seris 3 introduced a new main character due to Gary Holtons untimely (and mysterious) death. Wyman is waynes son. This seris is probably the weakest of the 4.
Seris 4 was great. All the characters back up to the standards we expect from them and a great story line.
All in all a great seris. This is something which will never die, will you be watching Bo'selecta in 20 years? I doubt it!! I know i'll be watching Aufpet (unless the discs break or something....god help me if they do...)
