A coming-of-age story set in the 19th century England about Edwin Clayhanger, a young man who wants to be an architect, but it is expected of him to continue the family's printing business which he accepts for the time being.
Yes, this was an excellent series, but got critically attacked at the time. It ran for months at 9.00 one weekday and had I think about 26 episodes like the Forsyte Saga, but it just did not have the array of characters now the sweep of time that that series had done. People thought it dragged; but it really deserves to be revived. For it is a fine drama.
