Recommended Posts

This is from an early 2000's BBC drama series set in Manchester called Clocking Off. In this clip, two of the shows main characters go to The Ritz in Manchester (to relive their youth by the looks of it). It is actually filmed at the Ritz, and most of those extras are 'real' Northern soulies. The music, of course, is the brilliant "Champion" by Willie Mitchell

I recognised blonde Caz from Bolton and Sully from Middleton, I think.(wearing the kangol hat),

Who's the style icon wearing the shades? He must be a mod.
