All six episodes from the first series of the late 1960s/early 1970s TV drama that follows lawyer David Main (John Stride) as he moves back to Leeds to set up a practice after years of high-flying success in London. Intending to establish his own business empire, Main quickly sets about cultivating his contacts with the city's great and good. But having come up the hard way himself, he's soon reaching out to help those less fortunate - even if it clashes with his own interests. The episodes are: 'What About Justice?', 'Body and Soul', 'The Professional', 'Liar's Dice', 'The Privilege of Justice' and 'With All My Worldly Goods'.

Don't be put off by the black and white format - you soon get used to that. Viewers in Australia and elsewhere can watch the British region version without a problem as long as they have a multi-region DVD player.
So please BBC, bring out series 2 and the rest of the set as soon as possible.
This series is in black and white which I enjoyed, for me it was a blast from the past. Looking back at the fashions, hairstyles, furnishings and cars etc was really interesting and tweaked many a memory. The accents are very plummy and everyone is very proper and smart, not a yobbo in sight.
This series is only from the 60's but it could be a thousand years ago comparing it to now. Thoroughly enjoyable.
