Does anybody remember ‘Band of Gold’, a British television crime drama series, written and created by Kay Mellor, first broadcast on ITV in March 1995 ?

I’ve just started watching it again on ITV Hub, don’t remember the second or third series so it will keep me going for a while

It wouldn’t be everybody’s cup of tea but the acting is brilliant and Kay Mellor could do no wrong in my eyes

Now you've mentioned it, I do recall it. We watched it and enjoyed it. Starred some well known people. Barbara Dickson I think was in it.

Yes we enjoyed that series….Cathy Tyson was in it if I remember rightly.

And as Wren said….Kay Mellor could do no wrong.

Yes both were, also, Geraldine James, and Samantha Morton, all gave great performances in a believable story, well worth a second watch

Yes, I remember that series too.
I watched the first and second series.
It was very well written and very well acted.
I found it very poignant, raising some uncomfortable truths about our society and highlighted some of the difficult and dangerous situations some folk get caught up in.
