    Man at the Top, originally screened in the early '70s, continues to chart the progress of Joe Lampton, the aggressively ambitious anti-hero of John Braine's best-selling novel Room at the Top, its award-winning film adaptation of 1958, and 1965 sequel Life at the Top.

    Kenneth Haigh's portrayal of Joe Lampton earned him a BAFTA nomination, while accomplished film and stage actress Zena Walker is Joe's long-suffering wife, Susan; a strong supporting cast includes Paul Eddington and Colin Welland, with guest appearances by Stephanie Beacham and George Sewell. This release contains the complete second series, available for the first time anywhere.

    Although Joe Lampton has returned to Susan, several beautiful women are eagerly forming the 'other woman' queue. And Joe, still believing the quickest way to a chairman is through the chairman's wife, is as determined and manipulative as ever on his continuing climb to the top; overcoming adversity once again, this series finds him seizing the opportunity to get the better of his father-in-law, and finally setting his sights on a political career - bringing all his ruthless charm and tenacity to the fight for votes.
