I am desperate, Dan! Classic stuff.

Gissa Job! Go on Gissa Job! Classic and so topical in current recession

Showing on BBC4 on Sunday nights at the mom but not on iPlayer for some reason. Look out for Ron Dicko and Roy Cropper. Forgot about the dodgy modern jazz incidental music too!

Fantastic series, well worth a buy me thinks

Been watching these repeats on BBC4. I think it's a government initiative to prepare us all for leaner times ahead.

Very funny but equally very tragic. The Yosser Hughes episide is one of the saddest and funniest things ive ever seen.

Brilliant Series - heat & rep

well, maybe not rep, cos I cant find out how to do this anymore!!! Anyone help?
