If only a series like this could be produced every five years, we wouldn't all be griping about our TV licences.

One of the BBC's finest moments, this gritty drama from the 1990s follows four friends from Newcastle over the course of three decades, taking in terrorism, homelessness, politics and affairs of the heart. Exceptional writing and four sensational leads in Christopher Eccleston, Gina McKee, Mark Strong and Daniel Craig. Essential viewing.
