There's also an interesting YouTube interview from 2001 with Tommy Kearins who played Dougie, "the wee boy" on "The Maggie" - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gh_gPwgaiVE



This interview throws some light on the film locations.

All is not lost:
Download/install a VPN (http://www.thetop10bestvpn.com/best-free-vpn-service) and then you can be "virtually" in the UK and watch iplayer when you are on your travels.

No, VHS, although it's a while since I used it.
