Very good, but he should really have used a screwdriver with a wooden handle and no let us see his light switch.

Well spotted, I did the movie some years ago, now I'd be more careful to get the props right

What a fantastic little film.
I hope you blew the dust off those cornflakes and poured them back into the packet.

I've seen this one before and love it. It has a great feel and is really well put together.

And it features about the only fault I can diagnose - the radio's not plugged in

Although a Murphy A24 would be totally reliable.

No I am not biased at all.

Well done Clive.
