I've managed to get a copy of Tony Palmer's newly-reissued The Wigan Casino documentary and with all haste, I've got a review of the DVD online.

For the uninitiated, Palmer took his cameras into the Casino for this 1977 documentary, which was part of a This England thread on ITV, capturing life as it was in the mid-70s – in this case, the grim reality of life in the town and the joy that the club provides for some of its young residents.

Check out our review and if you want a copy, expect to pay just under a tenner.
