... binmen.

Filmed in Oldham, Greater Manchester. "Hepworth District Council" is fake.

Blimey, proof that I am getting old. The above epithet was in common use in the other programme about bins, The Dustbinmen. I am staggered to discover that this was aired in 1969/70.

Series 1 (6 eps) complete

Rejects:
Ep1.01 - a 2[*]Rover [R8] which hoots its horn and gets V-signs in reply

Might be a 93-94 L plate, and has rounded sidelights, but grille looks bodged fit.

Ep1.02 - red Fiesta Mk1, seen twice, probably Popular or Popular Plus

Ep1.03 - Rover 800 and red Mini, possibly a Flame edition

Series 2 (6 episodes) completed. Excellent 1990s TV drama - S1 is very good indeed, S2 loses its way a bit (they're now ex-dustmen, so less focus) but has some intermittently superb moments which pull things together to keep it rolling. Both are recommended.

A fine trip through the last days of British commercial vehicle dominance :king:

My council now runs Mercedes Bin Wagons, MAN Tippers and a Peugeot / Citroen van fleet :(

Of course once Juncker closes the channel ports plans are in hand to buy Macks, Hinos and Toyotas :)

I'll try to copy and paste the comments from here, but I need my PC for that, as not possible for me with the smartphone.
