Peaky Blinders
I'm going to agree LE. From "cinematography", production, script and acting this is proving to be an excellent series. No wonder its getting plaudits from around the world let alone the UK.

I can't believe this.
My daughter has been offered a job on series four of Peaky Blinders - and she's turned it down!
I may never speak to her again!

I suppose it depends on the role she was offered but if I was you I would disinherit her NOW - time to go SKIing methinks

She works behind the scenes as an assistant director.
There were some extenuating circumstances - she would have been based in Manchester ( for a series supposedly set in Birmingham!) with no accommodation provided.  As it is, she is going to be working in London (where she can stay with friends) on a film of a JK Rowling novel.  So I'll probably have to stretch a point and forgive her!

Still believe us wrinklies and crinklies should go SKIing.

Being involved in a top programme like PB must be an experience.

Although I have enjoyed PB since it started and have seen every episode, I now hope it will end after this series as it has been taken way-off the history of the original PB's as was intended. Looking at the 'Proper' history, it was about the gang's of hoodlems who were basically petty thieves (Average height 5' 3"- 5' 4") and thugs who were driven out by an Irish Police chief who brought loads of fellow big, Irish cops with him saying to them, " Can you read, write and fight" and help him clean up the streets of Birmingham which they did. The BBC series has the PB's doing the opposite and driving out the Chief and fellow police. The stories seem far fetched now and the original plan because of it's success, has just made it like a period police drama like a Birmingham 'Ripper Street'.

Paul I intend to agree with you and given the history may be it should end with the police driving them out.

Thanks Terry, it's in the diary.

I've no doubt the BBC were enthusiastic about featuring Jessie Eden and her left-wing bias.

If, as the article says, Jessie Eden led a strike at Joseph Lucas, I'm glad it was before my time in industrial relations there otherwise I might have ended up facing her over the negotiating table. 
She would probably have made mincemeat of me.

I'm counting down - less than 40 mins to go.

I did read they wanted to portray the slums of Small Heath and the general poor living conditions in Brum at the time. Couldn't find anywhere suitable so went to Manchester for the filming!! Brilliant
