Drama series. The Gethin estate, on acres of land in the heart of Wales, is in danger of being swept up by the taxman thanks to a six million pound death duties demand. Both Lord Gethin and his son Michael are determined to save the estate.
However they have different ideas about how to do that – Lord Gethin would like to bring on board a mining company who would be able to exploit the copper reserves that are under the land; Michael though is completely opposed to that idea preferring instead to look at making it part of the national trust.
Whilst they argue over the estate’s future the vultures are circling.
