Eric Clapton on guitar; Bob Peck on acting; Joanne Whalley on eyes. TV will never be this good again. Watch it uninterrupted in one sitting, and just feel the commitment from the entire cast and crew.
That this environmentally aware masterpiece was made during the Reagan/Thatcher years is astounding.
It also marks the pinnacle of BBC production values, with a stellar cast giving their all, a script of intelligence and daring, and an attention to detail second to none. There is not a computer generated image in sight.
This piece, Pennies From Heaven and The Singing Detective show what the limits of the possible for TV might have been.
