First Among Equals

Who would have thought a Jeffrey Archer pot-boiler would expand into such an entertaining Granada drama series? From 30/09/86 to 02/12/86, viewers followed twenty years in the careers of four aspiring MPs, played by Jeremy Child, David Robb, Tom Wilkinson and James Faulkner, one of whom would finally achieve his dream of becoming Prime Minister. When Raymond Gould (Wilkinson) hit Downing Street, it was grand! John Gorrie & Sarah Harding direct; music by Richard Harvey.
