This review is from: Mike Leigh: The BBC Collection [DVD] (DVD)
This is glorious. I have waited literally decades for the release of Leigh's BBC Play For Today output. It will sound cliched, but there really was nothing else like his plays on TV at the time. The warmth and humour, the excruciatingly realistic dialogue and recognisable characters (well, certainly from my experiences) are all here. They are, unsurprisingly, very cinematic in places and an absolute joy to watch in their entirety. Finally.
You'll laugh, you'll cry, you will bridle in embarrassment. Don't wait for BBC4 to broadcast them in the middle of the night.
