User Reviews

An excellent adaptation of a classic novel
20 November 2001 | by MARGARET PHILLIPSSee all my reviews

The series is an adaptation of Phyllis Bentley's novel of the same name. In each generation the key characters were played by the same actors (James Bolam and John Thaw) which gave a wonderful sense of continuity to the production. The story of a Yorkshire wool manufacturing family from the Luddites to the present day it is an outstanding story with a production to match. I wish it was still available - it is well worth repeating.
