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.

Robert's home comes under threat of repossession, forcing him to make major changes. He heads to Manchester, where he bumps into Sarah - and the pair proceed to enjoy a day away from the stresses of their lives in the South Riding. However, neither of them anticipates the serious consequences their meeting will have. Meanwhile, Joe struggles to overcome municipal corruption as he tries to make his housing scheme a reality, and Lydia discovers her academic gifts could offer an escape from her family's crippling poverty. Drama, starring Anna Maxwell Martin and David Morrissey
