Stephanie Cole and Graham Crowden starred in the adventures of two geriatric delinquents from the Bayview retirement home who pass their time railing against a world where the young are revered and the elderly held in contempt.

Acid-tongued, world-weary, former photojournalist Diana Trent (Cole) and gleeful, eccentric accountant Tom Ballard (Crowden) rebel against the lethargy of their fellow inmates and the dodgy schemes of the Bayview’s profit-hungry manager, Harvey (Daniel Hill), and his simpering assistant Jane (Janine Duvitski).

A splendid half-hour of tragi-comedy, blackly reminiscent of Mike Leigh.
