Synopsis by Hal Erickson
The British drama series Sam covered nearly a two-decade time span, from the early '30s to the late '40s. After the death of his father, young Sam Wilson (played as a child by Kevin Moreton) and his mother moved in with their grandparents in a grimy Yorkshire mining town. The series followed Sam into adulthood, with future Taggart star Mark McManus taking over from Kevin Moreton during the second season. Presented by Granada Television, Sam was broadcast from 1973 to 1975, yielding 39 hour-long episodes.
