Alan Bleasdale's epic, darkly humorous story of power, corruption and madness played out in the conflict between the enigmatic politician, Michael Murray (Robert Lindsay) and his nemesis, schoolteacher Jim Nelson (Michael Palin). Nelson accidentally defies a Murray-inspired 24-hour strike and inadvertently steals the limelight when it is picked up by the press.

Then, when the pressure of public life and power games start getting on top of him, a beautiful woman arrives on the scene...
