Classy British studio bound TV drama from the 1960's. Although shot on videotape and in monochrome, this series' quality still shines through. Made nearly 15 years before Dallas, this series proved over 3 seasons that wheeler-dealing could be gripping without lapsing into soap opera.

At time of writing, the first series of 13 episodes are available on region 0 (pal) DVD from Network.
The second series is due out in the next few weeks.
