an acclaimed film by Alan Bleasdale the Award Winning film-maker famed for making socially gritty films like the celebrated 'Boys From The Black Stuff'. A quote from the BFA sums up the film well; It described it as '..a seminal drama series... a warm, humorous but
ultimately tragic look at the way economics affect ordinary people...
TV's most complete dramatic response to the Thatcher era and as a lament
to the end of a male, working class British culture'
It concerned a group of Liverpudlian Tarmac layers (hence the slang: 'the black stuff') on a job near Middelsborough. They have to find work where and when they could, it really was a take on life at the time in 'Thatchers Britain.....
Credit goes to Alan Bleasdale for allowing these films into the Public Domain
