Default Re: Middlemarch - BBC 1994

I agree, vald. Some of the adaptations - especially in the last few years - have just not hit their mark but there was a good six to ten years of serious drama being produced, almost exclusively by the BBC. And it was the moment that Davies was ushered into the limelight, although unfortunately now to the degree that no-one else has much of a chance of developing their scripting muscles. As poised and deliberated as his Middlemarch was his adaptation of To Serve Them All My Days in 1980, 13 hours of fine quality TV.
