TV Tiger Bay (BBC-1 1997, Martin Troakes, Jan Anderson) Published 3 months ago on November 17, 2018 Drama series. The problems of a group of various types in the Cardiff area called Tiger Bay, a melting-pot of race, class, poverty and new money.. Bernie Hutchinson is out of gaol and, after seventeen years away, is coming back home to Tiger Bay – but there have been a lot of changes in the run-down docks area since he was last there. His brother Roy, local hard man and now a successful businessman, is expanding his empire into casinos and floating wine-bars. His son Warwick, aspires Roy’s status but has definitely not been cast from the same mould. That won’t stop him and best mate Dan Monks trying though. Maria Monks was the love of Bernie’s life and the reason why he left all those years ago, when her guilty catholic conscience made her stick by her down-at-the-heel husband, Gary. Now their son Dan is seventeen and there is a sixteen year daughter, Jodie, whom Bernie doesn’t know about yet. And what no-one else knows yet is that Jodie has just lost her virginity to Roy. Charlie Jarrett, Bernie’s former best friend and employer, has had a messy year since leaving his embittered wife Betty and their daughter Kim, to move in with the younger and more glamorous Helen. But the arrival of a son Paul, promises a new beginning – until Betty turns his world upside down on Kim’s birthday. Pre-menopausal Landlady Beth Collins has invested everything in her marriage to Sonny and the pub they run between them. She is desperate to have a child before it’s too late but times are hard. The tests keep coming back negative, and then they hear about Roy’s new plans for a new wine bar which will cream off the tourist trade they’ve been relying on. A newcomer to the Bay is yuppie lawyer Salim and his sexy wife Kate, who are spending money like it’s going out of fashion. But Kate’s about to have a shock – Salim’s deep in debt and about to face fraud charge. Gossip ripples across the bay, particularly from watchful bay matriarch, Lil, and her favourite cab driver, Ossie. Lil’s outraged to see Charlie arriving home with Helen and their baby. It’s Betty she feels sorry for and she’s determined that they’re not going to let Charlie and his new wife get away with it. And so is Betty. Life in the bay is about to change forever. production details UK | BBC One(BBC Wales) | 8×50 minutes | 1997 Creators: Rob Gittins , William Jones Producer: Glenda Jones cast Martin Troakes as Roy Hutchinson Jan Anderson as Jodie Monks Suzanne Packer as Maria Monks Robert Gwilym as Bernie Mike Hayward as Charlie Rokie Ayola as Helen Joe Dixon as Sonny Tanveer Ghani as Salim Stevie Parry as Lil Peter Doran as Ossie Nickie Rainsford as Kate Francine Morgan as Beth Richard Harrington as Warwick Martin Cole as Dan Karin Diamond as Kim Gwynne Davies as Weasel Philip Howe as Gary Monks BBCDrama SeriesJan AndersonRichard HarringtonRob GittinsRobert Gwilym Advertisement advertisement and this just in Episodes8 hours ago Bring It!: Breaking the Curse of the B-Squad (S5EP20 Lifetime Thurs 28 Feb 2019) Breaking the Curse of the B-Squad: Alumni Kayla and Sunjai arrive at the Dollhouse to help the B-Squad break their...
