The Old Devils (1992) A BBC three-part play based on a novel by Kingsley Amis.

Note: never released commercially on video or dvd. This is a tv recording.

A Welshman retires and returns to his roots. While looking up his old mates and taking them on an extended pub crawl, many old affairs are revived and resentments rekindled.
This BBC production is faithful to the book. It's well acted and the calibre of the cast speaks volumes for the quality of the script. It sank without trace after transmission in 1992 and as far as I'm aware the BBC didn't broadcast it again.
