Peter Terson 's sharply observed comedy from 1972. 
Three Derbyshire miners escape for a weekend's fishing, with the best of intentions. "We ain't pigs. No brown aleing, no being sick over the wall - we'll show our wives we can be civilised without them." Three miners plan a blameless weekend fishing the cod. "We might be rough-and-ready miners on a fishing trip but we're staying at one of them there hotels, you know. Cliff View. Very nice it is. It's got its standards, but we can live up to them.' 
It's really a simple tale of innocents abroad, with a touch of comedy of manners. A group of Northern English miners take a fishing holiday on which little goes right, from a snobbish landlady who resents their presence in the guest house to their discovering that the sea isn't really their element.
