Boys from the Blackstuff: The Complete Series DVD

Starring Michael Angelis, Tom Georgeson, Bernard Hill, Alan Igbon, Peter Kerrigan, Julie Walters

Directed by Philip Saville



All five episodes of Alan Bleasdale's gritty Eighties drama. 'Jobs for the Boys', tells the story of an unofficial building gang being watched by the Department of Employment.

Their raid ends in tragedy. In 'Moonlighter', Dixie uncovers things he does not want to know about while he is working illegally at the docks, and his wife is frightened of opening the door because of the Department of Employment.

In 'Shop Thy Neighbour', Chrissie has his dole stopped after the moonlighting affair, and times become harder and harder. 'Yosser's Story' features Yosser's struggle to find work and retain custody of his three children, set against his slide into depression and instability. And finally, in 'George's Last Ride' George, the one character left unbroken by adversity, dies, but his legacy is discovered by Chrissie.
