From the commerciality of Pop Charts Britannia: 60 Years of the Top Ten (9.25pm) to something altogether different. Over the last five years, an independent record shop has closed in the UK every three days. This film documents of one of the very last still trading - a vinyl record shop in Teesside, a cultural haven in one of the most deprived areas in the UK. Filmmaker Jeanie Finlay, who grew up three miles from the shop, follows daily life in a place that is thriving against the odds, ensured of survival by the local community that keeps it alive. A distinctive, funny and intimate film about men, Northern England and the irreplaceable role music plays in our lives.
