Welcome to Reel Britannia-a very British podcast about very British movies ...with just a hint of professionalism.

Episode 068– The Long Good Friday (1980)

It’s Easter Weekend so forget Easter Parade and Ben Hur…join Scott and Steven as they chat about the ultimate Easter movie…Bob Hoskins and Helen Mirren on top form in The Long Good Friday (1980)

In the late 1970s, Cockney crime boss Harold Shand, a gangster trying to become a legitimate property mogul, has big plans to get the American Mafia to bankroll his transformation of a derelict area of London into the possible venue for a future Olympic Games. However, a series of bombings targets his empire on the very weekend the Americans are in town. Shand is convinced there is a traitor in his organisation, and sets out to eliminate the rat in typically ruthless fashion.

 “You don't crucify people! Not on Good Friday!
