Little Crackers--The Giddy Kipper

This Little Cracker is a poignant slice of life by northern comedian Victoria Wood. It was so sad when she died.

As she says in the introduction, it is not autobiographical, but it is about the grim north.  It is the story of the poverty of the working class as well as how different people deal with grief . It is grim, but at the same time hopeful.

It is beautifully acted and sensitively directed.

Watch it here:

How many of us have lost a loved one? Why do we miss them so much more at Christmas? How can we turn that grief outward into love?
