Product Description

Man at the Top, originally screened in the early '70s, continues to chart the progress of Joe Lampton, the aggressively ambitious anti-hero of John Braine's best-selling novel Room at the Top, its award-winning film adaptation of 1958, and 1965 sequel Life at the Top. Kenneth Haigh's portrayal of Joe Lampton earned him a BAFTA nomination, while accomplished film and stage actress Zena Walker is Joe s long-suffering wife, Susan; a strong supporting cast includes Paul Eddington and Colin Welland, with guest appearances by Stephanie Beacham and George Sewell. This release contains the complete second series, available for the first time anywhere. Although Joe Lampton has returned to Susan, several beautiful women are eagerly forming the 'other woman' queue. And Joe, still believing the quickest way to a chairman is through the chairman's wife, is as determined and manipulative as ever on his continuing climb to the top; overcoming adversity once again, this series finds him seizing the opportunity to get the better of his father-in-law, and finally setting his sights on a political career - bringing all his ruthless charm and tenacity to the fight for votes.

An excellent no nonsense gritty drama from the unrestricted 70s; Political correctness has got so much to answer for! Kenneth Haig plays the lead man with gusto as if he is enjoying every second. A new law banning PC needs to be enacted so we can return to normal natural values!

I remember this series when i was a child in London growing up .
This is a bit dated to say the least but it still holds a punch
great acting the plots are strong and a great theme music title.
Its a shame they never continued to do a Third series.

I gave the last series 5 stars although it probably didnt deserve it because it wasn't really that good. In fact it was pretty bad really. Ham acting, wobbly sets, hellish fashions and pedestrian storylines. But if, like me, you were Joe Lampton obsessed in the early 70,s then you will be prepared to forgive it almost anything.
This second series picks up the pace a bit, and this is the one I remember more clearly. Here Joe bullies, connives, cheats and shags his way through a further thirteen episodes. Some of which I remember quite vividly from forty years ago. (Did I just hear someone say "Get a life!)?
Okay it's still incredibly dated but remember that this was pretty much cutting edge stuff in 1972 and we weren't nearly as sophisticated then as we are today. And the clothes and the decor are still sidesplittingly awful. Remember these hideous kipper ties and shirts made out of the same material?
But never mind all that. If you're nearing sixty and you're a closet Joe Lampton freak then pour yourself a glass of Blue Nun and dig out the lava lamp and the fondue set and pretend you're 19 again. You won't regret it.
Finally a word of thanks to Network for trawling this one out of the archives. Who would have thought that this would have seen the light of day after all these years? Keep up the good work.

Was really looking forward to watching this again after all these years but it never arrived (even though the carrier supposedly handed it to me direct) Had ordered series 1 & 2 but eventually got a refund and never bothered re-ordering.
