This won several BAFTA's when first aired. It is a compelling dark story, wonderfully acted and directed. It tells the story of Edna, a bag lady and alcoholic. It tells us how she started down the slippery slope in her miserable life, and I have to say, it reduced me to tears. I really hope that someone somewhere has the rights to this masterpiece so it can be released on DVD, because it is a landmark in television drama. In television terms, I would rank in alongside other social classics such as 'Cathy Come Home' or 'Kes' (a co-production with the BBC). If anyone out there in film land wants to see something they'll never forget, demand your TV company airs this!
