This is one of the most important films ever made
4 May 2001 | by (Norfolk, England) – See all my reviews

I watched this programme when I was eleven and it has stuck in my mind for seven years! I thought it was and still is a very important and gripping film, that brings its audience to tears of laughter and sadness. One of the greatest programmes I have ever seen. Absolutely fantastic.
