Seeing Red: Factory Fables

2. Clocking Off This deserved prize-winner triumphantly returned the single drama to British TV screens with its tales of factory staff’s lives. Written by Paul Abbott, this is the opening episode, starring John Simm (BBC, tx 23.1.00) 1. Making Out Not made by Red Production Co, but an interesting counterpart to CLOCKING OFF. Queenie (Margi Clarke) and the girls rule at Lyne electronics in the first episode of this sharply observed comic series about a gang of factory girls, written by Debbie Horsfield (BBC tx 6.1.89)
