a marvellous, wonderful telly series from the 70s by a great writer.
16 May 2003 | by (manchester, england) – See all my reviews

this was a lovely old english show which comprised of short adapted dramas from the works of graham greene. featured in the cast was john hurt and alan dobie along with an assortment of other talented brit actors in lesser remembered roles. most of it was shot in the now defunct use of video and some of the editions were always watchable, beautifully acted, well made and even (for it's time) a bit risque! a particular episode which i vividly recall was the one about a middle aged american couple on holiday in london who decide to visit a sleaze cinema in soho who then discover that one of them has a murky past...priceless stuff indeed and well worth seeing.
