These pages may help to explain what it's about:-
Stealing from the last site, which is referring to the soundtrack CD by The Freed Unit:-
For almost three long years (early 1994 to late 1996) and 71 episodes the good people of leicester had the strange fortune of having their own soap opera....only this was no ordinary soap. …
