Although these three TV seasons date from the 1960s, they've aged very well - the basic ideas about power and office politics are still very relevant, served up now with a nice touch of nostalgia for how places and things used to look.
Watched this series on tv first time round and was excited to see it was available on dvd. Bought it for my husband for xmas and he was thrilled. He spent most of the next couple of weeks glued to the television, enjoying every minute of it. The picture quality is not perfect by today's standards but very, very enjoyable if you remember the series from long ago.
I saw this when it was first shown on uk tv, in 1966., 45 years on Wymark is still a joy to watch. . We first came upon him in the Planemakers, both series were watched avidly at the time. All the actors seem well cast, and they were individuals, I'm afraid nowadays actors tend to look rather alike(possibly my age)
Great to have had the opportunity to again see a series I enjoyed as a young guy in the 60s. I would have given it a 5 rating except for the sound which would be the result of copying the series from maybe old records or from vhs but this does not impact on being able to hear the dialogue. Being in black and white the picture quality looks old but the story lines compensate.
I saw this the first time round on live television and enjoyed it immensely. I can now watch it when and as often as I like, thanks to this excellent box-set. Very good value-for-money (even though the series is in black and white). I thoroughly recommend it to anyone who enjoys watching the wheels of big business and all its consequences, from the comfort and safety of an armchair. Most enjoyable indeed :o)
