Harry’s Game

GLOOMY THRILLER, another spin on the we’re-all-doomed pitch (see THE GUARDIANS), with make believe British Prime Minister ignoring experts (the fool!) and sending Captain Harry Brown (RAY LONNEN) into ranks of IRA to seek out assassin of government minister. Penned by former ITN bod GERALD SEYMOUR. BENJAMIN WHITROW and, implausibly, LINDA ROBSON among those waiting to see if eponymous hero “makes it through”. Broadcast over three nights.

    no Harry did not make it through. He was shot by a British patrol who thought he must be an IRA man (dead ironic eh ?). Interestingly Charlie from Casualty played his assassination target. Charlie’s resemblance to Martin McGuiness was quite striking. I think he wore yellow trousers too.

    Is that the show that had that wonderfully haunting score by Clannad?
