i have so far been very impressed with this latest collection of "armchair theatre" episodes from the 1950s and 1960s. the writing and acting in particular are first class as we are witness to some of the finest acting talent this country has produced. i am referring to the following actors: patrick mcgoohan, donald pleasance, harry h. corbett, terry thomas, arthur lowe, anthony quayle, amongst others.
inspite of the rather grainy footage and thin sets, it is the sense of excitement, intrigue and also suspense that has kept me rooted to my seat as i watch each plot unravel before my eyes and in my opinion, this is mainly what made british t.v such a force to be reckoned with in those early days, during when live broadcasts were made.
i can particularly recommend the stories with anthony quayle, patrick mcgoohan and terry thomas. all are completely different in the way that they are written but each one working tremendously well in its own right.
it has been a pleasure to be entertained by this classic t.v series of drama and character and i do hope that more will be released by "networkonair" in the future.
