Great Drama, shame BBC haven't released on DVD
9 March 2005 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Johnny Jarvis is the story of a young boy growing up in the early years of Thatcher's Britain, told from the perspective of his "best" friend Alan Lipton. It follows their relationship from its beginnings, when Alan makes it his mission to befriend Johnny, through school, exams and into early adulthood with Jake, Alan's mysterious father, and Stella the purple-haired love interest. Their relationships are set against classic British eighties themes such as unemployment, racism, gang violence, and not least Alan's growing lack of compassion for those around him.

After more than twenty years all I have to sustain my memories of this drama is the paperback novel. I do though remember it fondly and would love to see it again. There were rumours that the BBC accidentally destroyed the original tapes, although I have heard since that many duplicates were used abroad so all episodes are likely safe somewhere.
