Boys from the Blackstuff

Show Summary

A successor to his earlier, 105-minute TV play The Black Stuff (1980), Alan Bleasdale's five-part series relates the further experiences of unemployed Liverpudlian tarmac layers Dixie, Chrissie, Loggo and Yosser and their revered older friend, retired longshoreman and union leader, George Malone. As they struggle to make ends meet in a depressed economy and to hold together their financially battered families, they are harassed by the petty bureaucrats of the D.H.S.S. But the lumbering investigative juggernaut is, both comically and tragically, guided by drivers with only a provisional licence.
