Proud (The Wire)
  • Proud (The Wire)

  • 55-year-old Frank is an-old school skinhead, embracing the music, fashion and politics of the culture since he was a teenager - reggae, Ska, regulation Fred Perry and Harrington and respect for a multicultural Britain. A printwork veteran and union activist, he believes working class people have to stick together, regardless of where they're from or the colour of their skin. Frank's son Gary has been bought up to respect the same values as his dad. But Gary has been out of work so long he thinks he'll never get another chance. And how can he make his dad proud of him like his brother Anthony who was killed in Afghanistan? Maybe the answer lies in the politics of protest, protecting the memory of his brother and soldiers like him. Standing up against the anti-war protestors. Standing up for what's British... Starring Tom Brooke as Gary and Peter Wight as Frank. Written by Natalie Mitchell.
