The Brothers Companion: The Story Behind The Classic BBC Serial (Paperback)
The Brothers was one of the BBC's biggest drama successes of the 1970s. Over five years between 1972 - 76 the nation was gripped by the story of the haulage company Hammond Transport and it's dysfunctional founding family. Author and fan Rob Cope has accessed public and private archives to tell the story of the series and it's consequent success which saw the cast being mobbed in Scandanavia and Israel. With brand new interviews from leading cast members (Robin Chadwick, Jennifer Wilson, Julia Goodman, Colin Baker and Liza Goddard to name a few) and behind the scenes personnel, this is the first time this classic serial has been put under the microscope. Whether you know it as Arvingarna (Sweden), De Gebroeders Hammond (the Netherlands), Testamentti (Finland) האחים (Israel) or simply as The Brothers, it remains a television classic which had millions hooked each week.
