Ace British TV from when TV wasn't such utter rubbish

A Listmania! list by R. Fox (Bristol, UK)
(REAL NAME)   
 
Our Friends In The North (4 Disc Set) [DVD] [1996]
1.  Our Friends In The North (4 Disc Set) [DVD] [1996] DVD ~ Daniel Craig
The list author says:
  "Christopher Ecclestone, Daniel Craig and Gina McKee with dodgy newcastle accents in one of the bravest and best tales of friendship and time the BBC ever did (and wouldn't know how to do again)."
£49.99   Used & New from: £26.30
4.8 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (27 customer reviews) | 1 customer discussion

Teachers: Series 1 [DVD] [2001]
2.  Teachers: Series 1 [DVD] [2001] DVD ~ Ursula Holden Gill
The list author says:
  "Funny, intelligent and fantastically shot.  Pitch black comedy (and you forget Andy Lincoln was 'Egg' after 2 minutes, thank God!)"
£7.65   Used & New from: £0.09
4.7 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (41 customer reviews) | 1 customer discussion

Teachers: Series 2 [DVD] [2001]
3.  Teachers: Series 2 [DVD] [2001] DVD ~ Ursula Holden Gill
The list author says:
  "Even better than the first series.  More character depth, more emotion, and more strange goings-on in the background (watch carefully..)"
£10.00   Used & New from: £0.01
4.5 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (13 customer reviews)

Ultraviolet - Complete Series (2 Disc Set) [DVD] [1998]
4.  Ultraviolet - Complete Series (2 Disc Set) [DVD] [1998] DVD ~ Jack Davenport
The list author says:
  "This is the 21st century, and fans of Buffy should shut up and watch this, and realise that Buffy is insultingly disposable American trash.  Eco-drama of the last 10 years, easily."
£44.99   Used & New from: £2.88
4.7 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (53 customer reviews)

Cracker - The Complete Collection [DVD] [1993]
5.  Cracker - The Complete Collection [DVD] [1993] DVD ~ Robbie Coltrane
The list author says:
  "Coltrane is awesome as the first of a long line of 'alcoholic, screwed-up cops on the edge who have dodgy accents and smoke a lot and actually make it look cool'."
£39.99   Used & New from: £8.80
4.0 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (40 customer reviews)

The Book Group: The Complete First Series [DVD] [2001]
6.  The Book Group: The Complete First Series [DVD] [2001] DVD ~ Anne Dudek
The list author says:
  "Surprisingly ace considering it's primarily supposed to be about middle class saddo's just sitting about talking about Kerouac and Tolstoy.  Watch this and shut it."
£4.98   Used & New from: £0.16
4.0 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (17 customer reviews)

Boys from the Blackstuff [DVD]
7.  Boys from the Blackstuff [DVD] DVD ~ Michael Angelis
The list author says:
  "Gritty, insightful, realistic, quotable.  Again, the type of cutting edge programming that the major TV stations would never dare make again."
£7.62   Used & New from: £4.19
4.7 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (84 customer reviews)

The Singing Detective [DVD] [1986]
8.  The Singing Detective [DVD] [1986] DVD ~ Michael Gambon
The list author says:
  "Possibly the most influential drama of the last 25 years, this was the jewel in the BBC's crown in the 1980's.  All of Dennis Potter's work should be released, reasessed and revered."
£8.22   Used & New from: £3.43
4.8 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (61 customer reviews) | 1 customer discussion

Oranges Are Not The Only Fruit [DVD] [1990]
9.  Oranges Are Not The Only Fruit [DVD] [1990] DVD ~ Charlotte Coleman
The list author says:
  "The BBC's brave 1990 drama attempting to prove that in a loving relationship between two lesbians, one of them must be a ginge."
£14.98   Used & New from: £5.44
4.6 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (35 customer reviews)

Queer As Folk - Definitive Collector's Edition [DVD] [1999]
10.  Queer As Folk - Definitive Collector's Edition [DVD] [1999] DVD ~ Aidan Gillen
The list author says:
  "Channel 4's righteous drama proving that to be into Doctor Who, you must be a gay."
£19.74   Used & New from: £3.49
4.8 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (108 customer reviews) | 3 customer discussions

The Second Coming [DVD]
11.  The Second Coming [DVD] DVD ~ Christopher Eccleston
The list author says:
  "Intellectually, respectfully and affectionately proving that organised religion is a load of dirty pants and socks mixed up in a vat of Toffos."
£4.85   Used & New from: £1.64
4.3 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (23 customer reviews)
