Corruption in local politics.
12 March 2020 | by malcolmgswSee all my reviews

Corruption in local authorities was rife at the time this film was made.Made easier by unelected Aldermen and unopposed coucillors.So this film accurately reflects the situation.This may be the last of the Hugget films but it continued on BBC radio for 8 years and 168 episodes
