    A Horseman Riding By is a 13-part BBC drama series that was first broadcast in 1978. The series was based on two of the three books in R F Delderfield's A Horseman Riding By trilogy and starred Nigel Havers as Paul Craddock, a young man who was invalided out of the Boer war and invited to become squire of the long neglected Shallowford estate in Devon. Paul has to use all his charm and guile to convince the old families of the valley that he is capable of doing the job. Fortunately he is assisted by estate keeper John Rudd (Glyn Houston) who knows their ways. After a disastrous marriage to flighty Grace Lovell (Fiona Gaunt) Paul eventually marries Claire Derwent (Prunella Ransome). They make a great couple and face the challenges that beset the valley together. The biggest challenge of all is the Great War, which sees the valley lose many of its inhabitants and Paul back in service. The series was well received on its first broadcast and gave Nigel Havers one of his first starring roles. There is also an early role for Pam St. Clement as Meg Potter, who is now better known for her many years as Pat Evans/Butcher in the BBC's Eastenders. The series was dramatised by Alexander Baron, Arden Winch, and John Wiles (who was the producer of Doctor Who way back in 1966), directed by Philip Dudley, Paul Ciappessoni, and Alan Grint, and produced by Ken Riddington.moreless

    ITV (ended 1981)
    This British TV drama series shows what the British Army was like at the time. It uses an almost documentary style to show what life is like for the soldiers of the (fictional) B Company, 1st Battalion Royal Wessex Rangers, and their families. At the start of the series lead character Colour Sergeant 'Jacko' Jackson (Michael Billington) is selected to command 6 Platoon, a role usually reserved for officers, and the battalion is seen serving during an operational tour of Northern Ireland. After the first series young subaltern Lieutenant Ken Pickering (Martyn Jacobs) takes command of 6 Platoon and new episodes see the Royal Wessex Rangers serving as a mechanised infantry battalion based in West Germany (during the second series) and subsequently as resident light infantry battalion in Hong Kong (during the third series). As an unusually honest programme about British Army life and 'The Troubles' in Northern Ireland in the 70s, Spearhead was a worthwhile achievement for British TV.moreless
