Was a highly popular drama watched by millions, Clearing out my late mother's (RIP) bits and pieces I found a book about the making, Behind the scenes of this series, You knew back then if a book about a programme came out it was a popular series.
Further to your kind heads up on this one Olds . I got hold of the dvd ( got it for free too! ) , so when I get the chance I’ll sit back in my favourite armchair and enjoy it! Got it for free because they were giving it away because the cover etc was all in French and the title on the cover was The Cartel ( same film though). No problem playing because it has an English soundtrack along with the French one.
