Johnny Jarvis: The Complete Series DVD


This acclaimed six-part drama superbly captures the mood of late seventies/early eighties Britain, charting the fortunes of two school-leavers trying to find their place in the adult world. Powerfully written by Emmy- and BAFTA-winning Nigel Williams, Johnny Jarvis confronts the major issues of the day unemployment, racial tension, drugs and family breakdown and features memorably gritty performances from Mark Farmer and Ian Sears as the two friends who find their youthful optimism challenged by the harshness of real life. Hackney, 1977. Johnny Jarvis and Alan Lipton become unlikely friends in their final year at a comprehensive: Jarvis is the class clown, a popular lad with a talent for welding, while Lipton is a bookish dreamer who spends his time fabricating impressive exploits, pondering the future and fantasising about the father he's never met. As they leave school and anxiously embark on an uncertain future, can their friendship survive?

British television drama centred on two young men in their final year of school. Johnny Jarvis (Mark Farmer) and Alan Lipton (Ian Sears) are two unlikely friends attempting to navigate their futures and must consider their options in the adult world. Jarvis is a jack-the-lad type, popular amongst his peers and quite the opposite to his friend Lipton, a laid-back daydreamer with a penchant for spending a lot of time in his own imagination. However, the two set about their lives as adults and meet interesting characters along the way. The episodes are: '1977-1978', '1978-1979', '1979-1980', '1980-1981', '1981-1982' and '1982-1983'.
