Fine drama depicting The Troubles 1982,
This review is from: Harry's Game The Complete Series  [DVD] (DVD)
Back in 1982, ITV was a group of 14 companies. Of the 14, the "Big 5", Central, Granada, London Weekend, Thames and Yorkshire contributed vast amounts of all strands of progrramming to form a full schedule. Since starting in 1969, Yorkshire had never been shy of contributing it's efforts to ITV. Harry's Game was one of YTV's offerings. A three part drama set in Belfast involved Harry Brown, going undercover to locate and eliminate an IRA killer who had killed a British cabinet minister.
The drama features a decent cast and also sees Linda Robson (Birds of a Feather) with a questionable Northern Ireland accent.
Based upon a novel by Gerald Seymour, this series is well worth a watch and is a sad reminder of the capabilities of ITV drama in years gone by. Sadly there is nothing at all similar on the channel today.
Filmed just a few minutes away from YTV's Kirkstall Road studios in Leeds, Harry's Game is certainly one of the jewels in YTV's crown.
