This charming variety series is set in a fictional Lancashire 'working man's club', where average folks congregated for conviviality and entertainment. The club is a studio set, the club's 'compere' and 'concert chairman' (Bernard Manning and Colin Crampton, respectively) are professional actors, and the acts are comprised of recognized TV and radio favourites. On the other hand, the audience is made up of genuine publicans from the Lancashire area, who respond with unrehearsed enthusiasm as the comedians and musicians strut their stuff. WHEELTAPPERS AND SHUNTERS SOCIAL CLUB was originally broadcast from 1974 to 1976.
