Did You Know?

The film was shot on location on the Alexandra Road council estate in Camden, London. The iconic estate was built between 1968 and 1978 by architect and artist Neave Brown. It has been featured in many other blockbuster and TV films as the archetypal British ghetto. Considered a masterpiece of its time, it is now synonymous with crime and grime and the worst sort of social deprivation due to a failed attempt to force people to live in a what was aptly likened to modern concrete prison.See more »

Brilliant Adaptation!, 26 October 2001
Author: jackiem-3 from Wolverhampton, UK

A modern take on the familiar Christmas Carol story. This time Scrooge is a loan shark on an inner city estate. He brings misery to everyone who knows him, until he's finally shown the error of his ways by the three spirits. I recorded it last Christmas, and will certainly be watching it again this year. Look out for it being repeated!
