The Organization now available from Network

It’s very welcome (and unexpected) news that The Organization is now available to buy direct from Network.  This seven part series, broadcast on ITV in 1971, was originally due to be released last year, but when the release date slipped several times it made me wonder if it would follow the likes of Biggles (another Network title which is missing in action).

Written by Philip Mackie, whose work I’ve previously covered in posts on An Englishman’s Castle and The Cleopatras, The Organization centres around a faceless company where backstabbing is the order of the day.

Starring Peter Egan, Anton Rodgers, Donald Sinden and Bernard Hepton, and with the likes of Gretchen Franklin, Jon Laurimore and Norman Bird in supporting roles, it has the sort of cast to die for.

Not seen in the UK since the C4 repeats back in the 1980’s, I look forward to becoming reacquainted with the series very shortly.
