Shockingly under-rated three-part TV drama never released on DVD despite being by a great writer and with a great cast.
The play opens with a forty minute scene where a man tries to persuade his silent daughter to drink a cup of tea. We see how his character has struggled to maintain his self-respect despite not having a job, and living in a high-rise flat, and we see the anger in his character and how it has unforeseen repercussions for him and his family.
Mike (Bernard Hill) says that there is no difference between in prison and outside of it, and he is persecuted by a mad policeman. The series shows how society is obsessed by punishment, and that this creates the violence that it is supposed to be restraining.
Harrowing, but with streaks of jet-black humour, this should be repeated and released on DVD. A masterpiece.
