Nostalgic look back at British politics in the 1960s
15 September 2017 | by sktn77a@aol.comSee all my reviews

A low budget studio production of Jeffrey Archer's book "first among equals". Takes place in Britain in the mid 1960s and you could be forgiven for thinking it was actually filmed back then, rather than 20 years later. After all the political shenanigans and backstabbing en route, a rather poignant ending. Worth a watch if you can find it.
