5.0 étoiles sur 5 Worth Watching 12 mars 2017
Par Jim - Publié sur Amazon.com
Achat vérifié
This is clearly a leftist propaganda piece, but it is so well done and so well acted that it is worth watching. Interestingly, social leftists are often maligned as hypocritical, humorless teatotalers who hate professional sports. But this Prime Minster destroys that stereotype -- because he's quite an atypical, radical socialist who drinks beer, loves sports, lives with his Mom in an ordinary apartment complex, and continually cracks offhand jokes as he struggles through crisis after crisis.

Any re-issue should include sub-titles as the British accents are hard to understand sometimes.

The dust jacket for the VHS tape version indicates there are 240 minutes. But this is error, as there are only 152 minutes: Part One, 49 minutes; Part Two, 51 minutes; and Part Three, 52 minutes.

On the dust jacket, and at the introductory beginning of each Part, there are flames and burning material falling onto London -- but this never occurs in this TV mini-series, although it does occur in the book upon which the TV mini-series is based. So, those flames are misleading to a viewer of this TV mini-series.

The ending is hard to understand at first watch; but it helps to know the history of England. Near the end of the last Part in this TV mini-series, the principal nemesis of the do-gooder Prime Minister has been identified as being part of a behind-the-scenes power structure that has effectively ruled England since the Middle Ages; this nemesis is watching the PM preach on TV, and this nemesis asks Military Officers present, “Who will free me from this turbulent priest?” This mimics the question traditionally ascribed to King Henry II in 1170, “Who will free me from this troublesome priest?” (Alternatively rendered as, "Who will rid me of this turbulent priest?") Whatever Henry II actually said in 1170, knights who heard the question immediately went out and assassinated the king’s nemesis, Thomas Becket, the Archbishop of Canterbury who was then resisting Henry II’s attempt to control the Christian Church in England.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Great British TV. 3 juillet 2015

Both this and "Secret State", from a couple of years ago, are based on the same book be Chris Mullin. This one is more politics as usual, the other more of a thriller . I liked each for its own merits. McAnally presents a much lighter character, more innocent times the 80s I guess. This set could have used closed captioning, for it somewhat difficult to follow the plot with these American ears.
All in all a nice piece.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Queen Declares Power to the People 9 janvier 2010
Par Carol L. Marsh - Publié sur Amazon.com

This four-hour Masterpiece Theatre miniseries is among the very best shows I've ever seen on television. A socialist labor union leader, Harry Perkins (Ray McAnally), is elected Prime Minister of Great Britain after exposing corruption in the preceding government. He proceeds to try to implement his campaign promises -- kicking out U.S. bases, disarming nuclear weapons, etc., and encounters no-holds-barred opposition, as expected.

One of my favorite moments comes early in the program when the new Prime Minister is meeting with the U.S. Secretary of State. The Secretary is arguing that Britain needs nuclear weapons in order to defend itself.

"Vietnam didn't," the Prime Minister responds, and the Secretary walks out in a huff.

I don't know whether this show is available on DVD. I tried to order it years ago (I believe the program first aired in the early '90s) and got a DVD that wouldn't play on an American player. So my copy is on VHS.

I've also read the book by Chris Mullen, which has a different and much less satisfying ending.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 One of the best political dramas 14 février 2014

Consider yourself fortunate if you find this excellent political drama. I first saw it years ago and had recorded it on Beta. I have been looking for it ever since on VHS--I was not aware that it existed in a DVD version. I consider it a classic. If you find it, consider yourself lucky. I can guarantee that you will treasure it as one of the absolute best.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Another Day at MI5 18 novembre 2007
Par F. S. L'hoir - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: DVD Achat vérifié
British political thrillers are top-notch, and this one is no exception, even if it is a product of the eighties. The Cold War may have evolved into something else, but the problem of media frenzies, covert surveillance and behind the scenes manipulation of events by secret intelligence services continues. In this scenario, when a genuine left-wing Labour candidate becomes Prime Minister, certain Tories, to protect their long-standing aristocratic privilege, pull all sorts of shenanigans to dislodge him, even resorting to blackmail, extortion, and murder.

The designers of this series are to be complimented on the sets, which reproduced the interiors of Number 10 Downing Street in a convincing manner (from pictures I have seen). The elegant imagining of the staircase, the cabinet room, and the residence stand in marked contrast to those of "The Amazing Mrs. Pritchard," in which the interiors were so nondescript that I never believed for one minute that I was actually inside one of the most famous residences in London.

A drawback of this well-acted series [Among other actors, Clive Merrison is excellent as a slick BBC news presenter who excels in lobbing loaded questions at his guests.] is its rather faded look (although this probably can't be helped since the program was made for television in 1986). The series is also dated by the device that was likely included to give the story a hypothetical aspect: it refers to a king, which, since the Queen is still with us--and long may she reign!--and the Soviet Union has folded, detracts from the verisimilitude of the scenario. The most dated aspect of the film, however, is the use of what now seem like gothic computers with LED TV-like monitors that must hold about 55k of memory (Shades of my old Apple IIe!). One wonders whether the cell phones on "The Amazing Mrs. Pritchard" will seem like dinosaurs in twenty years!

To Acorn Media's credit, they have included a lengthy audio interview with the author as well as selected filmographies. As usual, there are no subtitles.

Each episode begins with disturbing images of burning debris falling into the Thames. The full significance of these does not impact the viewer until the end credits roll.
