Storyline

"The Hello Girls" is a "dramedy" about a group of mostly young women working as telephone operators in the city of Derby UK, and deals with their escapades both on the job and off. The two seasons are set in 1959 and 1961, when a great many telephone operators were needed to provide satisfactory telephone service. The constant use of the expression "G-P-O" may cause a little confusion for some viewers, but the letters stand for "General Post Office," which at the time the program is set, operated the telephone system of the United Kingdom. The GPO also handled telegrams, which explains the presence of a bicycle-riding telegram boy at the exchange. The women range from just out of school to one or two who are now married and have returned to work. Two older supervisors try their best to keep them all in line

A "Nice" little show
5 June 2001 | by siege_bSee all my reviews

This was a very pleasant show set in a time that was doomed to be shortlived. The telephone exchange workers of "Bloody Darby" (as Sylvia once put it) live under the threat of automation - a poignant fate we know is not far from them, while going through their lives and loves in a small community where everyone knows and loves the "hello girls".

It is not a grand series, but it's nice. The music is great (I'd love to own the sound track), the characters are easily identified and, while never really making your heart race, they draw you in and make you care about what happens to them.

As with most short lived series, though, we never find out everything we want to know, which is a shame because these girls are worth knowing.
