The above user is very perceptive.

Lido prised open a situation that if done less skilfully could have bored most people to death. However this was a stylish, imaginative, era defining film that in many ways led me into documentary film-making.

There is no doubt that television commissioners are under awesome pressure to secure record-breaking hits from titillating formats. However what they end up with is often a quick, generic fix.

This film for me is a true winner because it steers away from the hype, which is why it is so memorable over a decade on.

Films like this inspire and make it worth the effort to battle through the gatekeepers of TV to try and re-create some of its magic.
