David Main is an ambitious, dynamic and highly capable young solicitor who, having gained valuable experience in London, returns to his native Leeds to establish a new practice. Driven by a thirst tor success, Main seeks out the most lucrative cases, but is also a man with a conscience who often acts for the most vulnerable and underprivileged. While his occasionally impetuous approach can take him into difficult legal waters - to the distaste of his more reserved and cautious Leeds partner Henry Castleton - Main's acumen and resourcefulness rarely fail him. John Stride (The Wilde Alliance) stars as David Main, alongside Kate O'Mara (The Brothers) as his wife Julia, with whom he has a turbulent relationship, and Anna Palk as his efficient and attractive secretary, Sarah, in this immensely popular drama from Yorkshire Television. 'The Main Chance' ran for four series between 1969 and 1975; available for the first time in home-video format, this release contains the complete first series.
