Two youths try every trick in the book to get a Newcastle United season ticket
This comedy drama is based on The Season Ticket, a 2000 novel by Jonathan Tulloch, and takes its title from Geordie dialect for ‘very good’. It was filmed in and around Newcastle and there is a semi-distant shot of Tyne & Wear Metro units crossing the River Tyne on Queen Elizabeth II bridge, and a closer shot of a Class 156 ‘Sprinter’ DMU crossing Half Moon Street in Gateshead. There is also a particularly good shot of Tynemouth station on the Tyne & Wear Metro. Incidentally, Chris Beattie and Greg McLane are Newcastle fans in the film, but both are Sunderland supporters in real life!
