Tv - Stars To Reunite For Cult Tv Show's 30th Anniversary

The stars of cult British Tv drama Auf Wiedersehen, Pet are to reunite for a special event marking the show's 30th anniversary later this year (13).

The black comedy, which followed the exploits of a group of British construction workers on jobs overseas, first hit screens in the U.K. in November, 1983.

It became an instant hit and made household names of its seven stars, including Harry Potter actor Timothy Spall, and the show went on to enjoy a hugely successful revival in 2002.

A convention event is being planned in Newcastle, England - where many of Auf Wiedersehen, Pet's characters were based - to celebrate the anniversary, and several big names connected with the programme will attend.

Tim Healy, who played team leader Dennis Patterson, show creator Franc Roddam, and writers DICk Clement and Ian La Frenais are confirmed for the charity event, and several other stars are expected to attend.

Healy says, "Thirty years, I can't believe where it's gone. We're having a brickies' gala dinner and a charity auction with all the money going to the Sunday for Sammy Trust... It will be a great night."

The weekend-long convention, which will include a tour of locations used in the show, is due to take place in September (13).
