This review is from: One Summer - The Complete Series (2 Disc Set)  [DVD] (DVD)
In the 24 years since this series was first shown, I've never forgotten it.
Having just left school, and desperate to leave the small mining town I lived in, I identified strongly with the lead character, Billy, who yearned for a place that promised happiness away from all the crap that surrounded him.
Billy, and his reluctant-but-loyal sidekick Icky, did find an escape. To rural Wales. But could it last?
Yes, it has dated, but 'One Summer' is an excellent piece of drama that shows what it was like to be young in the early eighties, when the future seemed bleak and there was nothing to look forward to except a life of misery and crime.
Yeah, I know. How far we've come.
I can only hope for a DVD release of 'Our Day Out', which was another classic Willy Russell TV drama.

I too would love to see Our Day Out released on DVD. So little good drama on TV these days.
