Local Actor, Local town
13 October 2004 | by iam_adrianwhiteSee all my reviews

This 2 part TV drama was made by Yorkshire Television. Filmed during 1975. Story written by Stan Barstow from Ossett West Yorkshire Filmed almost entirely in Horbury West Yorkshire Drama set in the late 1930's Patrick Stewart from Mirfield West Yorkshire plays the father of Joby. Although the drama its self is nothing to write home about, it is very interesting especially for local people to see how a town was made to look almost 40 years older than it was, and how much it has changed in the last 30 years.
