The Brothers is a British television shown between 1972 and 1976 ( 92 pisodes )
One of the most popular drama series of the 1970s, The Brothers followed the lives of the Hammond family and their' successful road haulage company.
The series was based around conflict within the Hammond family over the direction of the family firm, a road haulage business called Hammond Transport Services, after the death of patriarch Robert Hammond. The eldest son, Edward (played by Glyn Owen during the first series and by Patrick O'Connell for the remainder of the show's run), prepares to take over the running of the business, only to find that his father has left equal shares to his two other sons, Brian (Richard Easton), a dull accountant and David (Robin Chadwick), a young graduate - and to his mistress and secretary Jennifer Kingsley (Jennifer Wilson). Storylines throughout the series dealt with plans to expand the business into an international concern, coupled with more family-oriented plots as Edward and Jennifer fall in love and marry.
Other prominent characters included Hammond's hard-faced widow and the mother of the three brothers, Mary (Jean Anderson), who is determined to continue exercising her own influence over her family, Brian's shrewish wife Ann (Hilary Tindall) and David's girlfriend then wife Jill (Gabrielle Drake). Later cast members to join the programme included Colin Baker as the villainous financial whizzkid and proto-yuppie Paul Merroney, Liza Goddard as his secretary then wife April Winter and Kate O'Mara as Jane Maxwell, the tough female boss of an air freight business.
Bill, the foreman was played by Derek Benfield, his character showing how the workplace of the 1970s was changing. His elevation from the shop floor to a key member of the board was met with resistance from both ends, and the subsequent decades allow this to be seen in context, one way that management and workers may work closer together to maintain the company's competitive outlook. The character of Paul Merroney can in hindsight be viewed as a prototype for the new Thatcher-inspired generation of corporate go-getters.
