White Goods – tape 1828

After a few tapes of commonplace US TV, here’s something a bit different. White Goods is a Lenny Henry vehicle, written by Al Hunter-Ashton and directed by Robert Young (who directed GBH).

Ian McShane and Lenny Henry play two friends who go on a snooker game show.

The show’s host is Chris Barrie.

The big problem is that everybody in this film is deeply unlikeable. Ian McShane unaccountably decides he wants to keep all the prizes, and is annoyed when Lenny Henry suggests their win might have been fixed. And the ultimate resolution, involving Henry setting off explosives that McShane placed around the prizes to protect them was unlikely to say the least. Not a classic.

The recording continues with some boxing, then a Tom Selleck western, Louis L’Amour’s The Shadow Riders.
