5.0 out of 5 stars My two pence worth, 30 Aug 2014
Series two, is shorter in length then series one. The quality of the production, as with series one is top notch.

While series one was more about other characters associated with the Taverna/pub. In this series the plot concentrates on the owners, and the espionage plot line comes to the forefront. This is an excellent drama series regardless of which decade it's seen in. Yes the transfer from film to DVD leaves a lot to be desired. Could there have been more in terms of extras? Yes there should have been.

Still a very worthwhile series to watch.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Rare Gem, 30 Aug 2014
One of the best drama's of the 70s.

Please look to the C. Fuller's, review which is really top notch. Ian Hendry is at his best here, maybe because the screen character is a alcoholic, and this problem was one he had in real life. A series of vignettes about expats who own a Taverna/bar, and some of the characters that frequent the establishment. For each has their own narrative - or dare I say secret.

Please note this series was made in the 70s,and the transfer to DVD may put people off, but saying all that it is a Gem - and well worth the purchase.

The book traces their origins from an Easter Europe feminist protest group - founded in Ukraine in 2008 and now they seem to be mainly situated in France as well as some south American nations as well as having other affiliates in other countries. They advocate public actions and protests - through the use of their bodies and shock imagery - they call people's attention to their voice to stand for freedom, justice and women's rights. Since their origins their scope has widened to include, themes of poverty, religious… Read more
