Never seen it since, Wish I could again
29 January 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I watched this in 87 when it came out and I have never seen it since. I look in the TV guide every year but to no avail. Glad I have seen it on here as I think I may have dreamt it. If anyone knows how to get a copy, downloaded or whatever I would be very grateful. The story was before its time and these days would maybe be likened to the royal family. The funniest part is when the youngest son has not bought any presents for his family so feeling a little ashamed he takes them to the shed and gives then all electrical items. His father, who is shooting the video says "He must have cleaned out Dixons" he sure did as the police come to arrest him about half an hour later.
