Series 1, Episode 1 - Dung From A Rocking Horse

'Suppose there must have been social workers then. But if there were, we never came across them. No calling in no official busybody to sort out your problems. Your mates stood by you. You got turfed out ... they'd find you somewhere else to hang your hat. Always another port in a storm in those balmy days of the Figaro Club...'
