Is it possible to see this show anywhere?
5 January 2008 | by See all my reviews

I vaguely remember this show from growing up but would love to see it now. Was it a groundbreaking show? How was the main character's heritage handled and how did he interact with other characters around him? Is there any way of seeing the show again? If anybody does know it would be great to hear from you. Was the BBC really so ahead of its time with commissioning this show? After all in supposedly more tolerant and equal times there is a severe lack of Asian faces on the screen either on television or film. While it's great to see Asian American actors getting work surely there must be better than 'Balls of Fury'.
