Please note this is a region 2 DVD and will require a region 2 (Europe) or region Free DVD Player in order to play. An everyday story of me mam, me dar, me kids and me gerl's owl feller... A forerunner to Carla Lane's Bread, this provocative mid-seventies sitcom pulls no punches in its depiction of a working-class Liverpudlian family who share everything... except faith and football teams! The Wackers (Scouse for 'mates') stars Ken Jones - best known as Porridge's 'Horrible' Ives - Alison Steadman, Sheila Fay, a teenaged Keith Chegwin and future Brookside legend Bill Dean, and is written by veteran screenwriter and Love Thy Neighbour creator Vince Powell. The series became quite controversial in its day and the final episode was never transmitted. All seven episodes are included on this set, complete and uncut. Newly released from a two-year prison term, Billy Clarkson rejoins his family - wife Mary, daughter Bernadette, sons Tony and Raymond, and grandparents Joe and Maggie - in the inner-city area of Dingle. But Billy's got his work cut out: re-adjusting to the demands of domestic life is so much more difficult when half the family is Protestant, the other half Catholic, and there's a constant threat of verbal argy-bargy erupting between the true-blue Evertonians and the Liverpool Reds...   Actors: Ken Jones, Sheila Fay, Alison Steadman & Keith Chegwin   Certificate: 12 years and over   Year: 1975   Screen: 1.33:1   Languages: English - Dolby Digital (1.0) Mono   Duration: 2 hours and 55 minutes (approx)
