8 editions published between 1996 and 2010 in English and Undetermined and held by 31 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
A nine part series depicting the varying fortunes of four friends as they grow and age. The lives of Nicky, Geordie, Mary and Tosker are shown in their social context, from the optimistic times of 1964 to the uncertainties of 1995. Taking nine pivotal years (1964, 1966, 1967, 1970, 1974, 1979, 1984, 1987, 1995) the personal lives of the characters become intertwined with the political struggles of their home town of Newcastle, and the capital, London. We also see the machinations behind the scenes that affect their lives, often for the worse: slum housing projects, police corruption, the rise of Thatcherism, political sleaze, and specific events like the 1984 Miners' Strike

The entire series of the popular BBC Television series charting the lives of a group of four Geordie friends from their teens until middle-age: Nicky is a radical socialist, determined to devote his life to the class struggle; Tosker a Jack-the-lad with dreams of pop stardom; Mary, courted by Nicky and Tosker, is eager to pursue her own professional ambitions; and Geordie, a drifter who runs away to London. The award-winning drama starts in 1964 in Newcastle and carries through the swinging Sixties to the recession ridden Seventies. By the late Seventies the friends find themselves together again, but the political climate and social changes mean that they are growing further apart. Tosker and Mary's marriage breaks down, Geordie descends deeper into petty crime and alcoholism, and Nicky's political protests manifest themselves by both illegal and legitimate means
