The toughest place to be a ...

I saw this show last night on the Beeb:


I was really pleased that someone with access to an audience and the resources to make high quality television made something like what I wanted to make. The best part is that the first person who mentioned this series to me is a guy named Slim who is exactly the kind of audience I think this kind of show should reach -- a working class Mancunian, rather than an overeducated film-festival-aficianado. He works the night shift on a maintenance crew at one of the university buildings. He mentioned the episode about the bus-driver several weeks ago and I thought it sounded interesting. When I stumbled across this on the tube on Sunday night, I realized it was the same show.

Props to the, BBC.
