Trouble at t' mill! sound the silent hooter!,
This review is from: Brass: The Complete First Series [VHS]  (VHS Tape)
Here it is at last! the video set of Brass, one of the best comedy series ever shown on British Television. This does for comedy what "When the boat comes in" did for serious drama.
Crisply scripted by John Stevenson and Julian Roach, it is full of pithy political commentary on the bygone age of industry and empire, with lines deftly delivered by the magnificent Timothy West.

Relentlessly funny, uplifting and unmissable. Get it today!
