    This tv play/film was screened between 1985 and 95, the plot was about a young Englishman in an Asian country. He somehow becomes involved with drugs, (can't quite remember all the details) he ends up in Prison and while waiting to be sentenced he befriends the Asian prison guard.



    The young man is told that he could face the death penalty and starts to open up to the guard about his childhood, recent life and how things would be different for him if he is released. The guard, (who wore a turban) slowly starts to show some compassion towards the young man as soon as he realises that he will be sentenced to death by hanging.



    The final scene is of the young man being hanged.



    It's not much to go on but the young lad who acted the part of the young Englishman was quite popular on tv at the time.



    I would love to know what the name of this was and the year so I can put it to bed.



    Any help would be appreciated, thank you.

    Wow! Euryale that is the one, I can't believe you replied so quickly and correctly, thank you ever so much. ;-)



    The popular young actor of cause was Lee Ross, who played Dodger from Dodger, Bonzo and the Rest.



    I had forgotten Amongst Barbarians starred David Jason and Cathy Burke.

    I remember Amongst Barbarians! Wow, it was shocking. David Jason fairly unannoying, too.
