Outstanding - the old and the new....
23 October 2005 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Fraser and Pryce, the baton is passed to a new generation. Umcompromising and unforgettable. 25 years after this was transmitted it still sticks in the mind.

Watch it as soon as possible. Perhaps a TV company should play this on a digital channel for a wider audience. As one of a host of brilliant dramas to come from UK television Play For Today series it makes much modern drama seem very superficial and shoddy.

I only regret not having seen all of these shows at the time. Whenever they appear on the schedule it is worthwhile making time to watch the early and often best output of these Brit TV/film makers/actors in their early years.

Saw this in black and white the first time... wonderful at bringing to life the atmosphere of 60's/early 70's. Man on the moon, music hall gone and comedy changing to something more in touch, or was it?
