A short film with Sathnam Sanghera and the Virdee Brothers

Here we are in Stourbridge, in a Costcutter convenience store that looks like it might once have been a petrol station. I'm with the author, journalist and executive car reviewer Sathnam Sanghera. We're here to meet and spend the day with the Virdee brothers who've run the store for years and retirement now looms large. But brother Pete's son has defected to the mighty Tesco.  The future is uncertain for this family business...

Why are we here? Simple - Sathnam has written his first novel (after the very good memoir 'The boy with the top knot') - it's published in paperback today and it's an epic family tale set mostly in a convenience store in the Black country.

Here's the film we made in a few hours, hanging out with the brothers...
