A five-part sitcom about the questionable practices of a group of barristers.

1: Forecourt Buildings is not a top-flight set of chambers but John Fuller -Carp, the Machiavellian head of chambers, is determined to become a QC and will perform almost any moral contortion to achieve his goal. When left-wing Ruth Quirke , rumoured to be the daughter of a High Court judge, applies to join chambers, Fuller-Carp's imagination goes into overdrive and a hotline to the Lord Chancellor and promotion seems inevitable. But will his "New Labour" image amount to anything? Written by Clive Coleman.
