Muck and Brass was a good stand alone drama on Independent TV midweek. The plot concerned a northern family and their industry. The acting was first rate and the story lines involving. Muck and Brass was definitely a drama but the characters were stock in trade northerners, which actually made it much easier to follow. I wouldn't say it was comic but there was a certain humanity to the pathos which made the show stick in the mind long after it departed the screens. Technically proficient it was edited and art directed to give a fairly sumptuous production value. Pompous, but in an entertaining way. Strong characterisation and a recognisable storyline made Muck And Brass a genre piece without becoming a cliché.
