Adapted by John Mortimer from his best-selling novels, and starring Leo McKern in an iconic performance, Rumpole of the Bailey set a new bar for all courtroom dramas to come. Airing on PBS between 1978 and 1992, this incredibly popular series balanced suspense and satire as deftly as the scales of justice. Spread across 14 discs, this box set includes all 42 episodes from all seven seasons.
