all I see in that article, is that they will be making some tweaking for it to appeal to family groups, in other words, working on the language.....
Personally, I dont think that is a good move, as someone quite rightly stated in the comments section, the film comes with a rating, because of the language, and it is clearly (here in London anyway) pointed out, that the show is not suitable for children under a certain age, because of the profanities used.
But lets be fair here, this is how life was back then, it is portrayed accurately, certainly how I remembered life living in a North East England town, during the mining era & during the strikes.
Making a few changes to the language isnt going to make it more appealing to families, you may as well take it away, if you want it to be family friendly.
But then of course, you're making it an unrealistic portrayal of the way life was back then, for us.
