Sharply observed and written with both sympathy and a sense of humour, this critical and commercial success was created and written by the reknowned Liverpudlian playwright Willy Russell. This is the first time that this long-anticipated series has been release on DVD.
This is the story of two Liverpool youths who go to the valleys of Wales to enjoy a peaceful life. They come from the Liverpool of 1983; a tough gritty, uncompromising city a long way from the magical days of the Beatles. For the teenagers, Billy and Icky, things are getting a little too close for comfort; like brushes with the police, the spectre of unemployment and the attentions of rival gangs. However, they don't find the calm idyllic life they expect. They have people like Kidder to contend with - a strange man, a loner who could very well change their lives.
