Does anyone remember the tv play THE SPONGERS, that was shown on BBC 1 early in 1978? A very powerful play looking at so much breakdown of a caring society, all played out against the background of the loyal people on a Council Estate organising their Jubilee Celebrations.

Could well take a full repeat at the moment (sadly).

I do remember it and I also remember my mother not watching it properly and proclaiming biased opinions because "It's called 'The Spongers' isn't it." sad
