Inheritance (TV series)

Summary
Inheritance was a 1967 Granada-produced ITV drama based on a trilogy of novels by Phyllis Bentley - Inheritance (1932), The Rise of Henry Morcar (1946) and A Man of His Time (1966). The ten-part period drama revolved around the fortunes of the Oldroyds, a Yorkshire mill-owning family from 1812 to 1965. The early part of the series featured the Luddite riots, involving the burning of mills and the subsequent execution of those responsible. The series turned the expression "There's trouble at mill" into a catchphrase. The series featured Michael Goodliffe, John Thaw and James Bolam in leading roles over the generations. Each new generation saw Goodliffe and Thaw playing father and eldest son, with Bolam usually playing the part of the younger son. Cast with original parts
