Just a Boys Game: Originally broadcast as part of the BBCs Play for Today series in 1979, this gritty tale of life in depressed Greenock has since been hailed as a cult classic. Jake (Frankie Miller) lives in the shadow of his dying grandfather (Hector Nicol), who was once the towns toughest hard man. Despite their hatred of each other, Jakes sole aim is to be as tough as the old man was. One day Jakes life of drifting, drinking and fighting, leads to a bleak realisation. The play also features appearances by Ken Hutchison and Gregor Fisher.
