Storyline

Working the lane amongst prostitutes, ponce's, punters and police is a very dangerous profession. Gina Dickson, a young mother in Yorkshire, is forced into prostitution to pay off her debts. Carol is a single mother who mental state is unbalanced and her time on the lane may lead her to self destruction. Rose runs the lane but she's losing her touch. Tracey is a young runaway that is hooked on drugs and is looking for love that she never got at home. Anita is a naive women looking for companionship, whether it be with a married man or with her friends. When, despite Carol's warnings, Gina discovers the worst that can happen to a woman who works the lane, Carol and her friends decide to pack it in, go legit, and form a business that will get back at the loan shark. The move from the lane to legit entangles the women in a dangerous game as their lives on the lane continues to haunt them. Written by Shaq

Band of Gold is a misleading title for a drama set amid the sordid world of street prostitution in the back streets of Bradford in the North of England. The series is up with the best of British drama with memorable characters achingly realistically portrayed. But there is one notable drawback. The first episode is so brilliantly written and involving with an ending sensational enough to leave me breathless that everything following is something of an anticlimax and the end of the series is certainly rather a let down.

But even at its worst Band of Gold is better than most of what passes for drama on TV today. See it if you get the chance.
