The bodies of Lesley and John Kilbride are discovered in shallow graves on Saddleworth moor and Brady and Hindley are tried for murder, receiving multiple life sentences, though David is exonerated despite the pair trying to implicate him and it will be some years before the murderers confess to the whereabouts of other victims.

Not to mention a fucking budgie,

who must no', under any circumstances,

be encouraged to learn filth.

Pardon my French, Joey.

Oh, deary me.

That's me skint.

- How are you doing, Dave?

- Not bad, Ian.

So, yous got a job yet?

Well, no, but I'm seeing someone

next week, so, hopefully.

Eh, you, I thought you were coming

straight up.

Does a dog have a soul?

You daft bugger!

I've never met anyone like him.

I told you, Ian can be all right

when he wants to be.

Just got to get to know him a bit.

And what's all that Neddie/Hessy stuff?

Hessy! Hessy!

They're just nicknames.

Neddie is from The Goon Show

and Myra Hess is some famous piano player.

Never heard of her.

Yeah, well, Ian's into all that

kind of stuff.

Classical music. Jazz. Books.

So is Myra now.

I think he's been really good for her.

Opened her mind up to new things.

Not like me, then.

What do you mean?

What have I ever done for you?

Well, not much, really.

Apart from marrying me

and giving me the most beautiful baby

in the world.

Come on. Let's go up.

Does a dog have a soul?

Give over!

Ergo, the whole notion of God is shite.


Look at that!

Take a picture, Hessy.

Eine andere Flasche, Hessy.

Jawohl, mein Herr.

- So, what do you think, Dave?

- I don't get it.


It's lovely.

- I don't know what hills are for.

- It's wasted on him, Ian.

You'll be stuck in Gorton with him,

Mo, for the rest of your life.

Oh, no, he won't. Redevelopment.

The powers that be are going to raze

Gorton to the ground, son.

- But that's not for ages, is it?

- No.

Gran's just heard she's got to go next month.

Which obviously means Neddie and I, also.

Where to?


The big estate

they're building in the Peak District?

There's lovely countryside all round.

They can't just knock Gorton down.
