Comment:

The complete BAFTA-winning drama. Christopher Eccleston, Mark Strong, Gina McKee and Daniel Craig star in one of the BBC's finest contemporary dramas, an epic nine part series following the lives of four friends from Newcastle across four decades from 1963 to 1995. Newcastle,1963. Nicky (Christopher Eccleston) returns from America where he has been involved in the Civil Rights movement. His political dreams and ambitions threaten to part him from Mary (Gina McKee), the woman he loves. Nicky's devotion to the Labour cause drives Mary into the arms of their friend Tosker (Mark Strong), while a fourth friend, Geordie (Daniel Craig), gets his girlfriend pregnant and heads down to London. Throughout the decades, against the background of an ever-changing Britain, the lives of these four very different friends will become progressively more entangled. The forces shapingthe nation are also changing and shaping them, devastating lives, tearing couples apart and challenging the boundries of even the firmest friendships... Winner of many awards, including BAFTAs for Best Drama Serial and Best Actress (Gina McKee), Our Friends In The North is a powerful and unforgettable drama and one of the great television milestones of the 1990s.
