This ‘kitchen sink’ drama with a lighter tone is based on a 1960 play called Sparrers Can’t Sing and was filmed on location around Limehouse, Stepney and Whitechapel. In one scene, a pair of Class 302 EMU’s are passing open ground by a housing estate and in another, one can be seen crossing a road bridge.
