UK or Swedish Viewers in early '70's: name this serial

Probably in 1971 or 1972 there was a night-time serial about an upper middle-class family who ran a trucking or transportation business. I believe the father had dies giving the manipulative older mother control of the business and she feigned a heart condition to get her sons compliance in how she wanted to run the show. The sons were married and there were family generational conflicts. It was sort of an updated to the 20th century Onedin Line but on motorized wheels. Does anyone remember this night-time serial and can tey give me a name as well as some cast members?

It is a long time since you posted this so you may not be on here any more, but the show you are talking about sounds to me like "The Brothers" with Jean Anderson as the matriarch.

That's it! When I looked up The Brothers on Amazon UK I immediately recognized the photos on the DVD box cover. Darn! Another necessary purchase. Thanks so much for remembering this most entertaining series. Heartily recommended for anyone who enjoys these types of dysfunctional drama!
