This was a short series dealing with the private lives of 7 British Prime Ministers. It was broadcast in the early 1980s and as far as I know, has disappeared since then.
Although my memories of this series are distant, having not seen it for more than 20 years, I remember it as compelling and absorbing. The acting was excellent, and the stories seemed to focus on a particularly interesting element of each of the Prime Minister's lives. I remember a particularly excellent one on Disraeli.
Hopefully someone will release this series on DVD one of these days. There must so much really good stuff in the archives. Hopefully we will get to see it again.
UPDATE: April 29, 2009 -- this is about to be released in the US on amazon.com
