Storyline

After an eight-year stint for a failed bank heist, Frank Ross (Tom Bell, Prime Suspect) returns to his old gangland haunts to find the snitch who sent him to jail. The smooth, streetwise ex-con quickly adjusts to the new attitudes of the disco-tinged '70s but discovers that although neighborhoods change, old grudges never go out of style. Played with steely intelligence by Bell, Ross doesn't hesitate to pull a gun or swing a fist if it suits him. Can he find the rat without falling into the clutches of a ruthless crime boss (Brian Cox, Rise of the Planet of the Apes) or the detective (Norman Rodway, The Bretts) determined to destroy him? Filmed on location in South London, Out depicts a world where gritty pubs, dingy flats, and run-down office buildings teem with high-living mobsters, cash-starved hustlers, and corrupt cops. BAFTA nominee Bell delivers a psychologically complex portrait of a gangster whose inner demons torment him as ferociously as his flesh-and-blood enemies.

Fantastic!!!

Frank Ross is out. And he wants to know who grassed. Who informed on him. Who caused him to serve years in prison.

This was a truly brilliant mini-series shown in England during the late '70s, about a failed bank robbery. The main character Ross, played by Tom Bell, is seeking revenge and the culprit behind his incarceration. I saw this again recently, and despite the flared trousers and floppy hair styles, it was still compelling to watch because of the acting by all concerned. And the build up to the climactic confrontation at the end is hard to compare with other TV series. It also stars Derrick O'Connor, who has appeared in Lethal Weapon 2, and Alias on TV.

They don't make 'em like this anymore...Unfortunately.
