Great Kitchen-Sink Classic
19 March 2020 | by GeorgeFairbrotherSee all my reviews

It's always fascinating to see an actor you recognise more for broad comedy take on a real dramatic challenge, and in this case Bill Maynard more than rises to the occasion. Behind the camera, he is supported by some top shelf talent in director Michael Apted and writer Colin Welland, and on screen, a great and authentic supporting cast as well.

In Stephen Frears' documentary on British cinema, Typically British, he, Apted and Alan Parker rightly look back very fondly on this period in British television, from which many successful filmmakers learnt their craft.
