The Nearly Man: The Complete Series, DVD DVD



All seven episodes of the British television drama miniseries created by Arthur Hopcraft.

Veteran Labour backbencher Christopher Collinson (Tony Britton) finds himself perfectly situated to be a prime candidate in the forthcoming general election.

Collinson isn't certain however that this is truly the path he wants to follow.

His political career is nearing its end and he may have no better chance to solidify his legacy, but he also sees the potential in engagement with the surging grass-roots politics of his working-class, northern constituency.

Both ways are mired in bulldog politics and backroom intrigues, and both will place new strain on his marriage.

The episodes are: 'Opportunity: March 1975', 'Power Base: April 1975', 'Millie: May 1975', 'Re-shuffle: June 1975', 'Confrontation: July 1975', 'Casualties: August 1975' and 'Options'.

The collection also includes the 1974 made-for-TV movie.
