The Rag Trade Fan Tributes
5 Deborah Bock from America: The episode when the staff were on strike was my favorite! The charcoal bisquits from the first aid kit being eaten was hilarious!
4 Margaret from Norbury: Very good comedy series - not in colour - I think it should be shown again on say, TCM, as the channel shows old films. Can be bought from BBC Shop, Eastbourne, Sussex.
3 Yvonne Halls from london uk: I loved the Rag Trade but the best bit for me was when Little Lil got stuvk in the freezer so fnny when they pushed her out frozen on a trolley. Esma Cannon was a brilliant actress
