1.0 out of 5 stars Completely unrealistic - not worth buying!, 18 Feb. 2016
I purchased this book for my father who was born and raised in the Glasgow tenements. He called me to tell me what an awful read it is. In spite of the fact that it is a work of fiction, the depiction of life in the tenements of 1968 is at least twenty years out of date. He told me that the book sounds like it should have been set in 1948 - then it would have been believable. The levels of poverty and deprivation described simply did not exist by 1968. He was almost offended by the fact that the book was dedicated to the "SURVIVORS" of the tenements. To the people who grew up in the tenements, it was not a question of survival but this was quite simply their way of life and they got on with it as best they could. This is certainly not an accurate portrayal of tenement life in Glasgow in the late sixties and as such, it makes for very poor reading. It seems questionable if the author ever set foot in a tenement building. This book is not a good read and there are many better works Amazon customers could spend their money on - just don't waste your money on this one.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant 70's Comedy Classic, 9 July 2014
Bought this as a Father's Day gift for my Dad as I remembered it was one of his favourite BBC comedies back in the 1970's. The day it arrived he sat down to watch the first episode and ended up watching six episodes in a row. He has since watched nearly the entire box set in a fairly short period of time. He says it is every bit as funny as it was in the 70's, if not more so.

It is not shown on mainstream TV anymore as it is not deemed to be "politically-correct". As with most political correctness, this view is a load of rubbish. It is classic comedy writing of the period and it has stood the test of time. Highly recommended.

I bought this for my father who had lost his old copy some years before. I arrived within three days and was in almost new condition. He was absolutely delighted with it and has played it almost non-stop since receiving it. A wonderful collection of tracks for anyone interested in 1930's/40's music. Highly recommended.

This is a simple product but one which is produced to a very high standard. The service given by the supplier matched the high standards of the product. Fast delivery, well packaged and sensibly priced. I would not hesitate to buy from UK Hobby Store again and I would happily recommend them to anyone.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Research Guide, 14 July 2009
Tracing Your Irish Ancestors: The Complete Guide
A very practical guide for those trying to find their way through the maze that is Irish family research. It gives great details of the many available resources and helps you find what you're looking for without going the long way round. Maxwell clearly knows what he is talking about and he has produced a very helpful & worthwhile publication.
