Synopsis by Hal Erickson
The lives of the Prices, a middle-class British couple, were thrown into disarray the moment that they won an expensive car in a raffle. Written up in a front-page newspaper story, Morris and Val Price (David Suchet, Geraldine James) were touted as a classic example of the old "rags-to-riches" story. Unfortunately, the newspaper item attracted the attention of a group of would-be criminals, and as a result, the Prices' 17-year-old daughter was kidnapped. Surprisingly, the three-part miniseries See Saw was just as sympathetic to the crooks' point of view as it was to the anguished parents, making this 1998 ITV offering all the more compelling. The program was adapted by Deborah Moggach from her own novel.
