Boys From The Blackstuff

This Memory is looking a little short on nostalgia! Have you got anything you could add?

Written by Alan Bleasdale, this hash drama showed an uncomfortable, yet very true, picture of life in Liverpool. Starred Bernard Hill ('Gizza job'), Julie Walters and Michael Angelis.

Do You Remember Boys From The Blackstuff?

    This was truly remarkable TV, lots of it stick out in my mind but the pub scene with the guy who sang "if I were a blackbird" and the big guy who crushed hands was superb. Also the scene where Yosser tried to drown himself and the kids, very gritty and obviously written by someone who knew people like that.
