Memorable drama
28 September 2006 | by See all my reviews

Intentionally grim drama serial regarding the return from the Second World War of the children of two northern families. The Haywards are staunch labour supporters, the Warringtons owners of a soon to be nationalised coal mine.

A riveting story exploring the differing effects of the Labour election victory on working class and upper class life, as well as the disruptive effect of war on the love lives of the younger members of the families.

It boasts a good cast and solid writing and is long overdue for revival on a cable channel or release on DVD.
