What's on TV

Posted 30-11-2004 at 14:37 by Acrylic-bob

I have been watching the new BBC1 drama series "North and South" on Sunday evenings. It is surprisingly good. Not much of a story, more a polemic on the evils of Capitalism, but then it was written in the 1850's.

It is the astonishing period detail that I find absorbing. It is easy to transpose a lot of what is shown into Accrington which sheds a little light on the horrible conditions that our forebears had to endure at the hands of unscrupulous mill owners.

It also gives some idea of the appaling gap in living standards enjoyed by the two halves of society. Rivetting stuff.

I may try making a TV review a regular entry.
