Hard-hitting drama in which Maurice Colbourne plays John Kline, a former SAS operative and convicted criminal who is released from prison and recruited to act as an undercover agent within Birmingham's underworld.
| There will NEVER be another TV series like THIS !!!
When this was first shown I was moved to write a letter of congratulation to the BBC Pebble Mill Studios at Birmingham, something I have never done before or since, and received a nice reply from the Producer, David Rose. Hard-hitting drama in a Black Country setting that is still traceable in some places and totally obliterated in others. Series Two did go off on a rather esoteric tangent, but if you like The Sweeney and Life On Mars etc. you will ADORE at least the original Play For Today and Series One. I had long ago given up on this production being released on Videotape and knew that, against the ever rising tide of Political Correctness, it could never be re-screened. When I discovered it was available as a DVD boxed set I nearly fainted and ordered it the same day. If this title is deleted due to lack of sales, a real 70's TV gem will have been lost. Probably forever. Buy it.
