The Glittering Prizes: The Complete Series [DVD]
The critically acclaimed BAFTA-nominated 1976 BBC Two series written by Frederic Raphael chronically the changing lives of friends who first met at Cambridge University. Starring Tom Conti, Barbara Kellerman, Clive Merrison, Roger Hammond, Connie Booth and Nigel Havers.
Tom Conti (Shirley Valentine, Merry Christmas Mr. Lawrence) stars as would-be novelist Adam Morris. Meeting as undergraduates in the early fifties, the drama explores the hopes and dreams of the group of idealistic young students.
Following their intertwining lives into the turbulent sixties, and on through the successes and disillusionments of the seventies as they achieve contrasting levels of worldly success.
Witty and bitingly satiric, it was nominated for a Best Drama Series BAFTA in 1977, and Tom Conti was nominated for a Best Actor BAFTA for his role.
