A nine part series depicting the varying fortunes of four friends - Nicky, Geordie, Mary and Tosker - from the optimistic times of 1964 to the uncertainties of 1995. Taking nine pivotal years (1964, 1966, 1967, 1970, 1974, 1979, 1984, 1987, 1995) the personal lives of the characters become intertwined with the political struggles of their home town of Newcastle, and the capital, London. We also see the machinations behind the scenes that affect their lives, often for the worse: slum housing projects, police corruption, the rise of Thatcherism, political sleaze, and specific events like the 1984 Miners' Strike


Christopher Eccleston .... Nicky Hutchinson
Daniel Craig .... Geordie (George) Peacock
Gina McKee .... Mary Soulsby/Cox
Mark Strong .... Tosker (Terry) Cox
David Bradley .... Eddie Wells
Peter Vaughan .... Felix Hutchinson
Freda Dowie .... Florrie Hutchinson

And more.

Anyone else like it?? It features the amazing Christopher Eccleston and Daniel Craig.
