Evergreen - - Spring 2016 -

the short­est head­ing we have ever writ­ten! Heather O’Neill from Carter­ton in Ox­ford­shire, en­quired about this tele­vi­sion pro­gramme which was broad­cast by Granada in three se­ries from 1973 to 1975, with Sam hav­ing a close re­la­tion­ship with his grand­fa­ther in the York­shire min­ing town of Feather­stone. It was ini­tially set in the in­ter- war pe­riod when young Sam was played by Kevin More­ton, then jumped to the con­tem­po­rary pe­riod, star­ring Mark McManus in the ti­tle role, later to be­come fa­mous as the Scot­tish de­tec­tive, Tag­gart. It was highly praised as an ac­cu­rate in- depth so­cial com­men­tary on the times.
