Summary
The Glittering Prizes was a sensation when it premiered on PBS in the late 1970s. Frederick Raphael's tale portrays the hopes and frustrations of an entire generation through the story of a group of friends who meet at Cambridge University in the 1950s. Six 80-min. episodes follow the evolution of these college students through the 1960s and into the 1970s where their lives diverge and they struggle with emotional disillusionment and varying levels of worldly success
