Mirroring the bear-pit attitudes of the time, this series follows the upwardly-mobile hopefuls at London-based investment bank, Shane Longman, as they try to scramble up the corporate ladder, taking risks, eating up the pressure, and following their instincts in search of that elusive deal that will finally announce their arrival in the city.

I have to agree with the other comment. This series had me spellbound from beginning to end and yet no one seems to ever have heard of it. It is a must see and I wish it would come out on DVD.
I found the characters excellent and cast extremely well. You see some of them from time to time. The story was powerful and really well done. Hats off to those that wrote it and put it all together.
The pressure portrayed in the series was fantastic. You agonized with the characters all the way through. I never saw the series in England but it must have been big there. It certainly was in the colonies.
Again, bring it out on DVD.
