Stand Up Nigel Barton / Vote, Vote, Vote for Nigel Barton

These acclaimed semi-autobiographical tele-plays from Dennis Potter feature working class miner's son Nigel Barton who has escaped his background to win a place at Oxford. There he runs headlong into the class war, but attempts to take something positive from the experience. In 'Vote, Vote, Vote for Nigel Barton' he has a well-bred wife and a job as a journalist, and decides to run as a Labour candidate in a securely Conservative seat. Ultimately his idealism and political passion are ground down with explosive effect.
