The Likely Lads is a British sitcom created and written by Dick Clement and Ian La Frenais, and produced by Dick Clement. Twenty episodes were broadcast by the BBC, in three series, between 16 December 1964 and 23 July 1966. However, only ten of these episodes have survived. Although it was never actually confirmed on screen, the sitcom was generally assumed to be set in Newcastle upon Tyne, North East England. ISBN 978-1-84457-213-7. Webber, Richard; Clement, Dick; La Frenais, Ian (1999).

The programme had two incarnations: the original series, The Likely Lads (BBC 1964-6) depicted the escapades of Bob and Terry, two footloose and fancy-free Tyneside lads; its even more popular 70s sequel, Whatever Happened to the Likely Lads (BBC 1973-4), shows our heroes coming to terms with the end of their youth and its attendant possibilities.

The Likely Lads book. Phil Wickham explores what the series says about Bob and Terrys times, from the affluent 60s to the more troubled decade that followed, how The Likely Lads tackled issues of class and masculinity and at the nature of the series humor and its enduring appeal. He examines its place in the tradition of British sitcom and why sitcoms have such a special relationship with their audience.
