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.
