| A superb, forgotten, UK TV series.
It is a shame that really excellent UK series, like this one with Janet Suzman, Louise Purnell, et al, are buried and forgotten. This was shown on UK TV in the 70s, and has not been heard from since.

Other forgotten gems:

The Gravy Train (Ian Richardson), a wonderful spoof on the European bureaucracy. This was shown on Canadian TV, but as far as I know, never in the US.

The Gravy Train Goes East (Ian Richardson), continuation of the series above.

Porterhouse Blue, (Ian Richardson), a satire on college life at Oxbridge.

The Glittering Prizes (Tom Conte), a wonderful series about a group of Cambridge students and their later lives and careers. I think this was shown on Masterpiece Theater when it came out in the 70s.

Added: Dec. 2009: Fortunately the last four series are now available, and highly recommended. Unfortunately, Clayhanger is still hanging.
