Big Breadwinner Hog Spindoe: The Complete Series Film Poster


Collected episodes of two late '60s gang drama series. 'Spindoe' was a spinoff from an earlier Granada drama 'The Fellows'. At the end of that series, Alec Spindoe (Ray McAnally) had been sent to prison but here he is on the outside yet again. After his time inside, he attempts to pick up where he left off but a bigshot crime Czar and a private dick are dogging his every move. Features six one-hour episodes. 'Big Breadwinner Hog' followed the rise of a career hoodlum, Hog (Peter Egan), against a backdrop of the London gangland. Unapologetic and brutal in its depiction of violence, the series was so ahead of its time that it was eventually pulled from screens before the end of its run - the only programme to have achieved that honour at the time!
