This is the final video of the fabulous Beiderbecke Trilogy written by Alan Plater.
This story follows the tale of Jill Swinburne (played by Barbara Flynn) and Trevor Chaplin (played by James Bolam) and their new baby "First-born". Jill has just returned to work after returning from maternity leave and they decide to employ a nanny to look after their new baby (whose is a former pupil of 3b). They then agree to provide a "safe-house" for a refugee called Ivan (the terrible) for Big Al and Little Norm. The writing is witty and very funny and the plot has many twists and turns along the way including many that you don't expect. A mixture of intrigue and humour.
A lot of the old characters are back such as Big Al, Little Norm, Detective Sergeant Hobson, Mr Pitt and the two police constables.
If you enjoyed the other two videos in this series then you will definitely love this one. You really need to have watched the first two tapes in the series to appreciate the plot and if you enjoyed the humour of shows like Preston Front then you will love this.
Absolutely brilliant. I enjoy watching this again and again.

final part of one of the best series of all time. Watch them all - the Affair, the Tapes and the Connection. This series is the best because of Firstborn and Ivan, but all are great. Worth every penny - I can't believe they are still available on video.

Format: DVD
"The Beiderbecke Connection," (2003), a box set of a light-hearted British television mystery/comedy/drama series, was made by Yorkshire Television for Britain's Independent Television stations (ITV). It's a sequel to The Beiderbecke Affair [DVD] [1985] and The Beiderbecke Tapes [DVD] [1987], set in Yorkshire as were they, and was created by the award-winning Alan Plater, one of Britain's more prolific, entertaining writers. It broadcast on American public television stations (PBS), following its two predecessors. The series comes in a two-volume, two DVD set of four episodes, each taking place immediately after the other, and runs approximately 204 minutes.

Unfortunately, there are no subtitles. And the cast, from stars James Bolam and Barbara Flynn - each of whom has frequently appeared in entertainments set in this part of the world, Bolam in The Loneliness Of The Long Distance Runner [DVD] [1962], among others; and Flynn in Cracker Complete Collection [DVD] [1993], and Cranford : Complete BBC Series [2007] [DVD], among others --down to the bit players, has been encouraged to trot out their local accents. It makes for tough going for some of us, who may miss some of the witty byplay among the characters.

It makes for tough going for some of us, who may miss some of the witty byplay among the characters. But the plot is easy enough to follow.

The entertainment, as its predecessors, centers on a pair of wisecracking Leeds schoolteachers (and we don't often see Leeds on our side of the pond), caught up in some amateur sleuthing.
