Our Friends in the North (UK)

A nine part series depicting the varying fortunes of four friends from the optimistic times of 1964 to the uncertainties of 1995. Taking nine pivotal years, 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, and political sleaze.
