Made for TV movie special. I watched this movie in the 80s and to be honest its a very good watch. There are a couple of good performances from Ivor Roberts and Oscar Quitak but John Hartley does stand out for his exceptional performance as Aneurin Bevan aka Nye.
Nye was a Welsh Labour Party politician and Minister for Health in the UK from 1945 to 1951. What is outstanding about Jonh Hartleys portrayal of Nye is how John Hartley is an exact likeness for Nye and he has certainly carried off the voice to match considering John was known for his strong Yorkshire accent. This could easily be Nye in the role himself.
If you enjoy history and politics and like people who champion the cause of social justice, the rights of working people this is a must watch.
