    ITV (ended 1990)
    Brass depicts the lives of two families at opposite ends of the social spectrum in 1930’s England. One is the Hardacres: wealthy, living in the big house at the top of the hill, looking down on everybody else, and the other is the Fairchilds: employed by the Hardacres, they live in a tiny tract house down at the bottom of the hill. Despite the differences in class and wealth, however, plenty of sexual intermingling takes place. Bradley Hardacre, played by Timothy West, owner of the coal mine, the cotton mill, shipyard, aircraft factory and much else - even the munitions factory. He strikes the perfect character as the cigar puffing, ruthless, greedy, wily, blunt, and lusting after power, money and women at the same time. Lady Patience Hardacre played by Caroline Blakiston is self-pitying and gin-dependent. Their marital relationship is a disastrous sham; indeed, to ward off any unlikely attempt by her husband at pursuance of his marital rights she has convinced him that she must remain confined to a wheelchair, whereas, in reality, she is a walking cauldron of desire.moreless

    ITV (ended 1995)
    The Dreamstone was first brodcast in the U.K on ITV as part of the "CITV" week-day children's block.

    It was created by Mike Jupp who had previously worked on cartoons such as "No Man's Valley",and "The Bluffers", and produced by Martin Gates

    The Dreamstone is set in the Land of Dreams, where all dreams are created. The Dreamstone itself is a beutiful, mystical jem which is used by it's guaridan, the wise old Dream Maker, to give the inhabitants of the world sweet, peaceful dreams.

    He is assisted in this by two Noops, Rufus and Amberley, as well as his faithful Watchdog fish Albert (A hybrid of a fish and a dog)

    But beyond the land of dreams, lies the Mists of Limbo, within the Mists of limbo, lies the Land of Nightmares, ruled over by the evil tyrant Zordrack , who schemes to infect the world's population with never-ending nightmares...

    The one force that stands in his way is the power of the Dreamstone, which can repel bad dreams, and so he makes plans to steal it from the Dreammaker and destroy it.

    With the aid of his squad of bungling Urpneys (commanded by Sergent Blob), Zordrack tries time and time again to aqquire the Dreamstone, but fails each time due to the courage and resolve of Rufus, Amberly, and the rest of the Noops, who will never let the dreams die!

    The series' music was provided by Mike Batt,(in) famously known worldwide for writing the song "Bright Eyes" for the Watership Down soundtrack...

    The series ran for 5 years, and was one of the biggest successes in the U.K...



    Characters:

    RUFUS: An adventurous, spirited young Noop, who often daydreams, and occasionly gets himself in mischief, but when it is time to stand up to Zordrack or peforming a challenging task, he shows no fear and proves he's up for the job...

    AMBERLY: Rufus's best freind, she always tries to steer Rufus away from doing anything mischevous, but ends up failing most of the time, and even gets into trouble HERSELF as a result.

    Neverthless she comes through for Rufus when it counts and accompnies him on his adventures

    THE DREAMAKER: This wise kindly wizard is the guardian of the mystic Dreamstone, he grants peaceful dreams to the real world using the powers of the dreamstone, his assistents are Amberly and Rufus. Often pulls more than a few plesant tricks out of his hat...

    ALBERT: The Dreamaker's loyal watchdog fish, Albert is very friendly and playful, but if danger lurks, he will not think twice about acting fierce to defend his friends and master...

    ZORDRACK: The master of the Land of Nightmares, and once a dreamaker himself before being exiled for misusing his power to create chaos, Zordrack is a collosal,cold-hearted ,dragon-like tyrant, fierce in power as well as in strength. He intends to blanket the world in nightmares, only the Dreamstone prevents this plan from reaching fruitition...

    URPNEYS: Zordrack's cheif troops, commanded by Sergent Blob...very sneeky, if a tad slow-minded..

    URPGOR: Zordrack's cheif scientest, the inventor of a thousand devilish devices designed to grab the Dreamstone and create havok in the land of dreams... which usually fail.

    Also detests the way Zordrack treats him and waits for the chance to seize control for himself...



    Dreamstone Lyrics (by Martin Gates)

    I used to dream myself to somewhere else each night,

    I dreamed in colour, 'cause I lived in black and white,

    Until I chanced upon this road that led to you,

    I could not see, how anything could be...

    (Main Chorus)

    Better than a dream, stranger than my wild imagination,

    If this is a real sensation

    It's better than a dream.

    Higher than the moon, hazy like a beautiful illusion,

    Crazy and in confusion

    And better than a dream.

    (2nd lyrics)

    I used to wish I was beyond some distant door,

    I knew there must be more to life and now I'm sure,

    No dream of pirate caves or indian braves,

    Or magic carpets could ever be this good.moreless

    Bless Me, Father

    Bless Me, Father

    Follow
    ITV (ended 1981)
    Produced by London Weekend Television, this series was written by Peter de Rosa and is based upon his autobiographical novels written as "Neil Boyd". The series is an engagingly idiosyncratic situation comedy based on the post-war experiences of a young priest sent to the parish of St. Jude's in the London suburb of Fairwater in 1950. Although it is not necessary to understand the sociological underpinnings to enjoy the comedy, the series gains extra bite from the relatively embattled situation of the parishioners as (mainly Irish) Catholics in a firmly Protestant Britain just recovering from the war and still smarting under Government rationing and other restrictions. (It should also be noted that St. Jude is the Catholic patron saint of lost causes...) Period detail is understated but convincing, particularly the hideous clothes worn by the pious women.

    The core of the series is naive and rather shy, Father Boyd's education at the hands of Father Duddleswell, an experienced parish priest whose staunch faith occasionally seems dangerously old-fashioned to Father Boyd but is usually revealed to be tempered by shrewd common sense and genuine goodness. Veteran character actor Arthur Lowe is quite magnificent in the role, conveying Father Duddleswell's limitations as well as his strengths, and making the growing affectionate bond between the two priests convincing and subtly moving. It is Father Duddleswell's nemesis Mother Stephen (head of the local convent) and Bishop Reilly who embody the hidebound and sometimes cruel aspects of the Church hierarchy. (It should be noted that novelist de Rosa is a formerpriest himself.) Daniel Abineri is convincingly earnest and gauche as the newly ordained curate embarrassed by his own good looks and appeal for the female members of the congregation. (So far as I know this is the only series Abineri appeared in.)

    Sharp-tongued housekeeper Mrs. Pring has a love-hate 40-year relationship with Father Duddleswell which produces some delightful insult matches, as does his conflict with next-door neighbour Billy Buzzle, a Cockney bookie and black-marketeer. Most of the Irish ethnic comedy is embodied in Doctor Daley, usually seen downing a whiskey with a fag end still in his mouth while reminiscing about the Connemarra childhood he shared with his oldest friend.moreless
