A Classic...
29 December 2006 | by (Bridge of Weir, Scotland) – See all my reviews

This has to one of the best programmes to come out of Scotland if not the UK from the BBC. The acting and the script are just wonderful and combines great (Scottish/Glasgow) humours and rock'n'roll, can't get much better! The script was adapted for stage in late 2006 and had a run of shows in Aberdeen and Edinburgh. Managed to get to the Edinburgh show and it was just a good as the TV show! The cast played and sang and were very good, OK you can't compete with Coltrane/Thompson but they come close. They are coming to Glasgow in April 2006 so get there if you can!! The reason the show has never been repeated or issued as a video/DVD is to do with the licensing of the music used in the show. I believe they are trying to sort this out so maybe we'll get the chance to buy a DVD version soon.

Some DVD copies surface on ebay occasionally but the quality isn't that great...

Cheers, Al
