Dinnerladies (BBC-1 1998-1999, Victoria Wood, Thelma Barlow)



Sitcom dinnerladies detailed the exploits of a group of dinner ladies working in a factory canteen. With most of the time spend on just the one canteen set, the show is more a procession of one liners than a sitcom but still carrying the inimitable Victoria Wood touch.
