Mayor Of Casterbridge - The Complete Mini Series DVD
Dennis Potter's reputation as a TV writer was further enhanced by this adaptation of Thomas Hardy's powerful and tragic novel. Potter had already received acclaim for his 'Nigel Barton' plays and a BBC ban for Brimstone and Treacle, and here, his authoritative script and filmic modifications of the text can be seen in terms of the development of one of television's greatest writers. By the time this series was broadcast in 1978, he was already working on the first of his own great works, Pennies From Heaven. At a West Country fair a drunken Michael Henchard auctions his wife and daughter: a shameful act which he is never able to forget. Years later, his wife goes in search on him and finds a respected and prosperous man. Henchard is determined to make amends, but his actions only serve to bring more despair and destruction.....
