Did anybody else rate this comedy featuring the late Gerard Kelly? I think this show and Colin's Sandwich could be in a sitcom sub genre: the hero has ambitions to be a writer. Think my parents watched it, IIRC.

I vaguely remember it, but being a BBC Scotland production, I don't think it got much of a promotion/airing down South. Not many Scottish shows did in those days, i.e. before satellite/cable regional options and (obviously) iPlayer.

I've not seen this show in years. I can only remember that he worked in a bank and that is it, lol. I do remember though that I liked it when watching it. I'd like to see it again on DVD but Amazon don't seem to have it.

The site has been taken down 4 or 5 times in the past year. The same with 'weegieburd' on YouTube, people report them, they vanish for a few weeks then pop up again under a new name.
