    Sure I'v asked for this before but can't find the thread.

    Does anyone have this adaptation of Keith Waterhouse's novel This Office Life? It was broadcast on BBC, 1984-85.

    All I've been able to locate is one single screenshot - fortunately, of the lovely Jenny.

    Oosp! This should be in the TV section, not Film. Would a mod move it, please?

    OK, done.

    I remember reading the Keith Waterhouse story and liking it a lot. It does sum up the pointlessness of much office life
    But I've never seen the TV version

    Did anyone ever find one? Or has a new DVD come out i the last 3 years? I've just read the book, and I'd love to see it, but I can't find any sign of it.

    Good luck with this! I've been searching for years, never seen any kind of release. Sadly, it was a one-off and not part of an anthology series, so no chance of it popping up on a box set (as Jenny's appearance in The Wild Duck does)

    So do people think it's been wiped, or that ti definitely there, but nobody's interested? It was shown in 1984 when all kinds of people were recoding all kinds of stuff ... Is it really possible that there's no copy? (Not that I want to kill myself finding it: it may, after all, not be that great. The book was good, and looked perfect for a TV version, but who knows?). Is Fellwanderer still looking for it?

    I have not been able to find a copy and the BFI does not have one.
