    No, but it sounds interesting. What can you tell us about it ?

    i'm intrigued, it won the 1972 Royal Television Society's award for Best Regional Production and Rossiter received good notices from The Times and The Sunday Telegraph. Does anyone have this or has at least seen it ?

    Wow ! Was thinking about this today, and googled Leonard Rossiter to find the title - and then found this practically new thread on dear old Britmovie. I remember watching this back in the 70s on HTV - probably a repeat as I didn't live in the area until '73. As far as I can remember it was set in Bristol, and was about local council corruption and property speculation. Think it had a bit of a touch of Finney's Gumshoe about it, and given the locale was a slight precurser to Shoestring. Would love to see it again.

    I have the Bob Hoskins/John Thaw Thick as Thieves series from '74. Not sure if this is the same thing perhaps?
