Trivia

The "Trident" aircraft used for exterior shots in the series was an ex-British Airways aircraft which suffered a heavy landing at Glasgow Prestwick International airport. It was found to be beyond economical repair to re-enter flight and became a training tool at the airport for tug-drivers and firemen. It was re-painted in "Air Scotia" colors specifically for the show. See more »

Funny and a scottish camp classic
9 July 2003 | by (Glasgow, Scotland) – See all my reviews

I remember watching The High Life when I was about 18 and after 6 episodes of it I felt its a shame only 6 was made however the less episodes made the bigger the legend.

Alan Cumming and Forbes Masson wrote and created 6 really funny episodes. Siobhan Redmond was hilarious as Steve and Sebastian's nemesis Shona Spurtle.
