This wonderful little book goes "behind the scenes" and tells the back story of the story's predecessor, as well as giving tantalising insights into the filming. It's well written, by someone who's clearly a fan himself yet still objective.
I disagree with the author's assertion that the final chapter in the trilogy, "Connection", is somehow the weakest of the three (in my view it's definitely "Tapes"), but that's what critical analysis is all about.
A good little read, and a fascinating addition to a collection about one of the finest TV dramas ever produced, made in the days when Yorkshire TV was a force to be reckoned with. ITV today is populated by half witted producers who are only bothered about making money from phone-ins; television like this could never ever be made in the UK again. We're all a lot worse off for it, but whilst The Beiderbecke Affair lives on in print and on DVD, well... that's the sanity clause.
Well recommended. Go buy the DVD and the novel also.
The actors were all perfect.
An optimistic time before I'd married or burdened self with mortgage and real-life realities.
Excellent scene spotting - The DVD anniversary issue is well worth the money - as well as all series of Biederbecke you get the CD soundtrack and precursor series Get Lost!
