Storyline

The story of a group of people from Northern Ireland, trying to make their way in life in the face of sectarian and political polarization. Chucky is an overweight 30-year-old who has yet to find a purpose for his life, but when he comes up with a business idea, things begin to change in an almost miraculous manner for him. His friend Jake is an unusually sensitive repossession man, and his life too begins to change when he meets Aoirghe, a woman from the other side of the sectarian divide. Written by Anonymous

Phenomenal book, great series, where's the DVD?
19 October 2007 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

A wonderful book, one of the most moving, funny and perceptive to come out of The Troubles...and I remember the TV series with huge affection, especially when I see Mark Benton in those appalling bank adverts. Anyone who visits Belfast and goes on one of the hilarious and enlightening bus tours will recognise the humour and insight of the series. As to a DVD...must be some clearance/residual problems involving actors or music(BBC Scotland made what were probably similar mistakes with Tutti Frutti) - but it's a politically and historically important piece that really MUST be re-released. If GBH can finally see the light of day...we can only live in hope. As for Vincent Regan....what on earth happened to him?
