Ian Hendry and Nyree Dawn Porter starred as Malcolm and Maddie Laurie – a happy couple whose marriage was suddenly threatened as they had to come to terms with the fact that Maddie had a terminal disease.

Hard-hitting and unsentimental, this daytime afternoon drama became compulsive viewing throughout much of 1980 due to its powerful take on terminal illness, self-determined euthanasia and the aftermath of a death in the family.

Produced by ATV, the twice-weekly serial had excellent writing and an affecting, stylishly minimalist design ethic.
