Trivia

The programme was filmed in 1978 and was ready for broadcast by the end of that year, but an internal dispute within the BBC led to a postponement of over a year. While most people assume that it was written in response to Margaret Thatcher coming to power, it was in fact written over 18 months before this happened. See more »

Quotes

[McKenna has just sacked Yosser. Yosser says he is going to go it alone, but McKenna threatens that he will make sure that Yosser never works again]
Yosser Hughes: [ranting] We'll see about that, McKenna. I'm gonna have more than one stinking shirt. I'm gonna have a suit for every day of the week. I'm gonna have a plane, McKenna.
George Malone: [to himself] And I'm gonna go to Lourdes, get cured, come home, divorce the missus and marry Rita Hayworth. God knows, there's nothing like hope.

A real treat.
19 September 2004 | by (northamptonshire) – See all my reviews

A group of lads from "Liverpool" travel to "Middlesborough" in their transit van to lay tarmac on the roads of a new estate on "Teeside". Whilst there they get up to all sorts of mayhem,the young lad who is the "teaboy" is told by the older men to put plenty of sugar in the his tea because it will help his sex drive.! Meanwhile the guys have a dream of owning their own tarmac gang,and go off to a local bank to try to borrow the money for this hair brain scheme. As you can imagine all of this dreaming could go belly up, and the sex drive etc could be a "windup". Most of the cast went to on to be big names in "Great Britain",and this is real classic that will make you howl with laughter.
