Our Friends in the North: Complete Series

£6.99 Out Of Stock

Product description

Box in fair-good condition, with several scuffs and creases, but all three discs are in very good condition, with little to no marks or scratches. Booklet is missing.

The entire series of the popular BBC Television series charting the lives of a group of four Geordie friends from their teens until middle-age: Nicky is a radical socialist, determined to devote his life to the class struggle; Tosker a Jack-the-lad with dreams of pop stardom; Mary, courted by Nicky and Tosker, is eager to pursue her own professional ambitions; and Geordie, a drifter who runs away to London. The award-winning drama starts in 1964 in Newcastle and carries through the swinging Sixties to the recession ridden Seventies. By the late Seventies the friends find themselves together again, but the political climate and social changes mean that they are growing further apart. Tosker and Mary's marriage breaks down, Geordie descends deeper into petty crime and alcoholism, and Nicky's political protests manifest themselves by both illegal and legitimate means.
