    Default Boss Scaffolding Documentry / Top Banana

    I remember seeing this when it first came out but my memory is a bit hazy (It does that as you get to a certain age, but I never forget the way to the pub!! )

    Has anyone got the full version or am I just being lazy by not trawling youtube etc.
    I'm not a complete idiot....There are still bits missing!!

    Remember seeing it years ago as well,the gaffer seemed a right tit,talking down to the lads,and telling a squad they werent getting paid what they had earned on price,in case they done sweet F.A the following week,then at the end he knocked down a cantelever in the rain topless,just a load of 5hite for the tv cameras,wonder if the firm is still going..

    Daz,
    It may seem he was showing off for the cameras but that is him all over, I worked for him and his dad and his uncle, His dad owned Fergusen Keene, Bruce owned Pylon scaffolding, they then joined forces to create FKPylon then Bruce left and started Boss scaffolding, and yes they are still going. Your right about the price stuff you get what you put up the wall and no more.

    FK were indeed a big player, I believe Richard died I think he also set up the scaffolders olympic games years ago, He did trade as hyscaff.
    Any chance of sending it to me recorded delivery? so I can get it onto disk, I'll cover any costs, I'll get it onto cd and offer it to SF and anyone who wants it free plus postage and packaging of course. I know most of the lads on the programme and have lost touch.

    Any chance you could post it on you tube ? I remember a documentary called "Top Banana" with a guy who looked like the 3rd Mitchell brother. Is this the same one?
