This was one of the finest series of the late 1960s.
Aggressive entrepreneur John Wilder (Wymark) aided by his long standing side kick Don Henderson (Watling) battle the old fashioned dynastic Caswell Bligh (Evans) in the running of Blighs Construction. Alongide the business rivalries and clashes of personality, driving ambition and frustrated visions, run the political aspirations of Caswell Bligh at the National Export Board.
Enter adultery in the form of John Wilder seeking access to confidetial National Export Board information from Susan Weldon (Leach) and his wife Pamela (Murray) fighting back.
This fine cast make the most of the excellent scripts. They each have very distinct on screen personalities that match their characters perfectly.
Patrick Wymark's performance as Sir John Wilder is a tour de force, dominating both the action and the camera
The series appears to have been filmed on videotape in 1966 and the quality suffers as a result, and there are one or two, fortunately very short, scenes where serious deterioration appears to have occurred.
Unmissable, they don't make them like this any more.

Format: DVD Verified Purchase
The great actor Patrick Wymark passed away in the early seventies and his acting legacy and clasic interption of the soap(yes this is soap but an intelligent subtile under played one) villian justily live on these DVD'S However it has been the misfortune of the younger genaration of TV viewers not TO have been made aware of this great actor and this hiden gem of a series. When the frequent book's show's and reminses of clasic british tv are read and watched they have never mentioned this clasic series which surly must be a hell of a case to state with a straight face that britih TV drama was once the best in the world and what could have been produced and broad cast on the telly(to the masses before a bunch of media studies clone grudiates and popular opurtunist took over the network's) could be as reviling thought provoking and engaging as any performance of a play put on in the theatre(what ever they say which is still aimed and priced for a minorty of afluent excusivly educated libiral elites).
This is a show about whealing and dealing in the worlds of whitehall and the city the two often intertwined and coliding with each other. Bligh the patrich of a major company has left his business to take a seat in government a self made man but non the less susptible to the prestige and pomp of the Britih establishment he has left the runing of the business(ablit with a ever present far reaching iron grip) to his weak easly swayed son Keneth who's inherent biterness at his father for not eclipsing his sucess or breaking away from his shadow motivates his every move an unreasonable state that the crafy pragmatic city dealer Wilder is happy to exploit in his objective to tarnish the overbearing Bligh just as long as he can line his pockets in the event.
