I remember seeing this series in 1969 and the controversy it created. It was something I had to see each week for the extraordinary energy of Peter Egan's central performance and the break-through violence that permeated the series. 33 years on my memories are very vague and I have not heard of the series since.
The attacks in the tabloid press were severe, does it still exist? Or was it wiped? It is amazing to see that Apted and Newell were responsible for the series direction, not something that meant much to me when I was 15!
Recent addition to comment. The DVD of the series was released in March 2007.
A chance for a re-assessment.
