From the 1930s to the 1960s, Sam follows the life of a young boy growing up in a Yorkshire mining village. But Sam reflects more than just one man s life it captures the qualities and textures of the time, weaving and exploring the fabric of a nation. It is 1934 and Sam Wilson is ten years old when his mother Dora leaves her husband and brings Sam to Skellerton, the Yorkshire mining village where she grew up. Her father, Jack, has been unemployed for more than eight years and her family has little enough money to support themselves. Will they manage with another two mouths to feed and how will Sam s childhood change? What happens in Sam s life, through post-war Britain, the search for his father, the passing of people he loves, the ever-changing industrial world and a life of austerity that found itself in the 1960s as a country that has never had it so good make this a both compelling and engaging drama. Some stories can take a lifetime - and some lifetimes can tell a story. This is Sam s.

I THINK THE CHARACTERS AND THE SETS AND THE LOCATIONS ARE SPOT ON, I HAVE JUST FINISHED WATCHING ALL THREE SERIES AND IT WILL NOT BE LONG BEFORE I WATCH IT THROUGH AGAIN WHICH IS CREDIT TO THE SERIES AS I AM A DISCERNING VIEWER THESE DAYS!!!!
EXCELLENT ALL ROUND ALTHOUGHI WAS VERY SAD TO READ 'jack'AND 'ethel' DIED SHORTLY AFTER FILMING FINISHED...I AM NOT A SILLY WOMAN BUT IT REALLY UPSET ME THEY WERE SO REAL TO ME!!!!!!!!!!!!!
The subsequent two series move the story on past the war and the child actor is replaced with a young Mark McManus of Taggart fame. These episodes are perhaps not quite so enjoyable, being more conventional dramatically in the way the story of one man's life moves on, but they are still good quality stories with numerous familiar faces appearing. All 39 episodes are presented here.
It covers the complete life of Sam from a young boy to a grown man growing up in very hard times. If you enjoy series from days gone by I think it is worthwhile you getting this series.
Well worth buying and watching,though the end episodes are rather weak.
