The Knowledge is the wonderful story of four men and their attempts to become London cab drivers. In the process, they acquire a different kind of knowledge: knowledge of themselves and of those closest to them, of their strengths and weaknesses, of what they want from life - and how knowledge itself is the means to getting it...

On the Taxis - The Knowledge review by AER

Spoiler Alert

Not arf! This made-for-TV film is a funny fossil. I saw it in the 90s at some point when the BBC was replaying a lot of these 'play for today' kind of TV movies. Better in the memory than today, the style of acting and delivery is that of Only Fools and Horses and On The Buses. It's not very sophisticated but once upon a time, I found this hilarious, which is the reason I looked it up. It doesn't stand up well enough as a timeless classic but it is fun if you want to see London how it was in the 70s, and to revisit a film that probably won't get streamed or even remembered in another few years. It stars old TV.Movie staples like NIGEL HAWTHORNE, MICHAEL ELPHICK, MAUREEN LIPMAN, GILLIAN TAYLFORTH, DAVID RYALL, JONATHAN LYNN, and in the lead the all-but-forgotten MICK FORD (SCUM and HOW TO GET AHEAD IN ADVERTISING).... WRITTEN by Jack Rosenthal (LONDON'S BURNING) and directed by BOB BROOKS (SPACE 1999)....
