disappointed
I was rather disappointed with this BBC version of South Riding. It compares badly against the 1939 film and the 1974 ITV versions. Indeed it is a pity that the ITV freeview channels could not show again the 1974 version, although it is available on DVD. The same can not be said of many more serials from the seventies and eighties including the excellent 1979 series The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie of these no DVDs exist. But to return to this version of South Riding the trouble with it is it's a very much a cut down version. Another thing is the bad casting, of the three main charactors from the original novel namely Sarah Burton, Robert and Midge Carne they were just to young for the parts they are playing. At least when the BBC took another ITV series Upstairs Downstairs they made it as a sequel to the original which worked well this remake did not.

Ambitious teacher Sarah Burton returns to her native Yorkshire to become headmistress of a struggling girls' school. However, her sweeping plans to change everything from the curriculum to the school buildings lead to her making an enemy of troubled local landowner Robert Carne - a situation that becomes more complicated when she takes an interest in helping his fragile young daughter Midge. Andrew Davies's adaptation of Winifred Holtby's novel about community life in rural Yorkshire during the 1930s, starring Anna Maxwell Martin and David Morrissey, with Douglas Henshall, Shaun Dooley and Penelope Wilton
