First shown as a Play for Today in 1972, Peter Terson’s sparkling comedy of class and manners stars Brian Glover, Ray Mort and Douglas Livingstone. Three Derbyshire miners head north to Whitby for a spot of sea fishing.

Checking into a shabby B&B run by a haughty landlady and her henpecked hubby, the trio are bamboozled into paying a high price for their rooms. They board their chartered boat piloted by a taciturn ex-fisherman, who makes stern warnings about mixing chips and brown ale on a swelling sea. The boys are half-cut before they’ve left the harbour, and as they reach the cod grounds they’re decidedly off-colour. With his unshakable poise, fervour for self-improvement and back-of- the-sauce-bottle learning, Art is the well-meaning group leader who anchors the action as they head for deep water.
