Anyone remember "The Brothers" Daytime tv Programme?

Looking at all the various threads of years gone by and in particular the tv programmes. Do anyone remember the lunch time tv programme called The Brothers, used to be on back in the eighties around lunch time. It was about a family running a haulage firm, they were called the hammonds. Ah the memories

Yup, I remember it alright.

It was more of a '70s series really.

As a 10ish year old, I remember it being a big thing with the 'olds'.

Basically, it was Dallas before Dallas was invented.

It's a pity it didn't go on longer.

The mother of the sons appeared in a lot of later stuff on tv.

Crown court was another that used to be on around lunch time too.

The Brothers RTE 1977

I saw the Brothers on RTE1 back in 1977/78.
( Then County Cork was one channel land, i.e. RTE )

One episode put a dent in my memory.
The plot was that another transport company had gone into receivership.

The brothers hired an executive from this company to help them bid against a company "A" for the bust company's contracts.
This exec was also hired by this company "A". The brothers and company "A" fired him as both contracts stated "exclusive services".

A third company got the contract. The closing scene showed this exec bursting with laughter.
All of us watching it followed suit.

It's Available on DVD

The real baddy was a character called Paul Merrony, played by Colin Baker who went on to play Dr Who.
