Third time lucky?
Eps 1 and 6 have audio all the way through and I have replaced the eps 10 and 11 with the ones from series 2 (!) as the originals were from series 1.
I have appended the word "new" to the file names to highlight this.
Feel free to PM me if there are any questions or any help I can give.
My sincere apologies, am now off to Torrent school.
Thanks for the information goes to the uploader of series 3
SAM is a 39 hour Granada series for which John Finch wrote all the scripts over the two years in which it was transmitted, which is still regarded as a record, and due to the changes in television is likely to remain so. It followed A Family at War and like that series was in the television novel form which Finch created.
Semi-autobiographical in nature , it was set in a South Yorkshire mining village and followed the eponymous character through various trials and tribulations from 1936 until 1974. Sam was notably played by Mark McManus, and other characters were played by a first class cast which included Michael Goodliffe, Alethia Charlton, Ray Smith and Jennifer Hilary.
It had a varied international audience and was repeated three times in New Zealand. It won a number of major awards and was very warmly received by the critics. It was in the top UK ratings throughout, and knocked Coronation Street from its number one position.

I used Auto GK having ripped from the rarely available DVD set, and no matter what I did it came out with varying file sizes, so apologies for that, but I have done extensive viewing and checking and it all looks fine.
It seems that 1970's production techniques were what they were and it reminds me of When the boat comes in, regarding quality of image.
The other 2 series making up the three that were made are here:-
