Seven-part drama series based on the serial by Eelke de Jong and Rijk de Gooijer that appeared in the weekly Haagse Post from 1984 to 1987. The series tells the story of Koos Tak, a rather silly jour­nalist who is not taken seri­ously in his profes­sion, but pretends to the outside world that he is a great reporter. His wife, who loves him uncon­di­tion­ally despite his prepos­terous atti­tude, realises that Koos’ pomposity is not a sign of arro­gance but hides his born cowardice. Koos Tak is not a bastard, but an anti-hero, for whom the world is too large and who regards himself as too big for the world.
