Budgie Bird is a born loser - a petty crook who clings to the fringes of Soho’s bent society. An incorrigible optimist, he has an eye for easy money, pretensions to the big time and a cornered market in failure. But Budgie bounces along - a snowball in Charlie Endell’s private hell, trying to be a blizzard...

Adam Faith gives a career-best performance in this top-rated, early 70s drama series. Created and written by celebrated screenwriters Keith Waterhouse and Willis Hall (Billy Liar, Worzel Gummidge), the series also features Iain Cuthbertson (Children of the Stones, The Railway Children) as the bad-tempered spiv Charles Endell, esquire, and guest stars of the calibre of Jack Shepherd, John Thaw, James Bolam and Derek Jacobi.
