20 January 2007 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Brilliantly funny!! Part satire on "its grim up north" drama and surreal in a Pythonish way at times. Timothy West has great fun (I imagine) playing an unscrupulous factory owner pulling out all the stops (as do all the cast) to lampoon all the stereotypical traits of such well recognisable characters. Stevenson and Roach (the writers) have pitched the whole thing just right. Not enough people "got it" at the time and it has fallen out of the publics memory it seems. Time for a revival. Search it out, it is still available on DVD I think. " Too much meat in the canteen dinners" is Bradley Hardacres response to any show of spirit from his workers. The workers are so poor, they can only bring a grape (yes A grape) to the hospitalised. Yes its that surreal.Enjoy if you can find it.
