Diamonds (ITV 1981, John Stride, Hildegard Neil)

Drama series Diamonds took us into Coleman and Son, a company at the leading edge of the diamond trade. Heading up the family business is Joseph Coleman but his ambitious son Frank is looking to take over.

A really strong cast and another starring role for the brilliant John Stride. An interesting concept made this an excellent series – albeit one that only ran for a single season.
