It starred Robert Lindsay. I've got it on DVD and think it's excellent.
Also regarding "Prospects", have to say watching it brings back many memories, however the as the actor who played Billy (Gary Olsen) passed away at such a young age it always leaves me feeling a bit sad.
Yes, Gary Olsen is a great actor and it is sad to watch him in this, though I am sure he wouldn't have wanted you to feel like this ... Prospects is great viewing! Haven't seen "Give Us A Break" - tell me more, sounds interesting ...

Daley & McCann are, as good as, holding hands, on the exercise yard, in the scrubs.
"Give Us A Break" was about an Arthur Daley type character played by Robert Lindsay who discovers his girlfriend's young brother has a gift for snooker. Paul McGann plays the part. It was filmed around West London in 85-86.
There is the obligatory local pub and the obligatory friendly landlord, played by David Daker. It was written by Geoff McQueen (The Bill, Big Deal etc). I got it on ebay for a few quid. Let me know if you want a copy, gratis.
