Now I know it's dated but I've seen that The Dustbinmen is very reasonable on the Network site, is it worth a punt?

There is a clue in the title. Need I say more? :D

I reckon Aaron would enjoy it and it is probably sitting pride of place on his DVD rack.

I remember that Trevor Bannister, later of Are You Being Served? fame played a lead role as a womaniser. I imagine that it is very dated in every sense now. I mean, we don't even refer to Dustbinmen now do we? They are Refuse Collectors or whatever. Might be worth a punt for curiosity value only.

I do indeed own a copy, but to my shame have never watched it!

Given the writer and stars of the show, I think if it's of interest to you then you should definitely take that punt.

I think I'll put it on my list. I've watched a couple of part episodes on that YouTube thingy and it seemed OK if a little dated.
