This Is England '88 exclusive

Shortlist Woody Exclusive.jpg

Before This Is England ’90 looks at rave culture, Shane Meadows fast-forwards the bovver-booted action to the late Eighties for a festive three-parter. Woody’s been ostracised from the gang, Shaun’s delving into the world of theatre and it’s all propelled by the same winning mix of broad gags and gut-wrenching drama.

You can see an exclusive clip below and watch the first episode on December 13th at 10pm on Channel 4.

See the rest of our alternative festive TV guide here.
