Bread (1989)

Concept and creative process

A title sequence for a sitcom about an honest-enough Liverpool family surviving on their wits, each one bringing in their share of family income to Mum, who stores it in her china Chicken Bank, seen in a shoot panning over the family breakfast table. Live action filming from the production introduced the family members and their ways of making money and pooling it together. The sequence ends with the Chicken Bank brimming over with cash.
