Synopsis:
Includes the original Play for Today as well as the complete BBC TV series that swept the awards board in 1982 and has been talked about ever since. Alan Bleasdale's chronicles of the lives of a group of tarmac layers - Chrissie (with a powerful performance by Julie Walters as his wife, Angie), Loggo, Dixie, George and Yosser - bitterly dramatised the frustrations suffered by a fruitless search for work and an antagonistic social security system. Though harrowing and uncompromising, the stories, laced with scouse wit and humour became a seminal series.
