IMDB link: IMDB
Synopsis: The serial was written by Liverpudlian playwright Alan Bleasdale, as a sequel to a television play, The Black Stuff. It is described on the website of the British Film Institute 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."
